Reports that Minister of Public Enterprises, Malusi Gigaba, has rejected privatisation as an option to turn SAA around will hurt the prospects of saving the airline in the future. This stubborn approach by Minister Gigaba fails to acknowledge the very fundamental problems with the national carrier - which he has been unable to fix during his term.
I therefore challenge Minister Gigaba to endorse my call for a debate in the National Assembly on the privatisation of SAA and deliver a ministerial statement in the house setting out what his plans are to fix SAA. This will allow MPs to engage with him on this extremely important issue.
