No decision to move SAA to Transport portfolio

Sunday, December 3, 2017

Government has not taken a decision to move South African Airways (SAA) out of the National Treasury to the Department of Transport.

The Presidency said in a statement on Sunday it had noted media reports suggesting that government had taken a decision to move the state-owned enterprise to the transport portfolio.

“The reports are incorrect. No such decision had been taken by government,” said the Presidency.

It said while there are many views about where certain entities may be better located as government continues to look for ways of improving the performance of state-owned enterprises that does not translate into a decision.

“SAA remains located at the National Treasury where it will continue to receive support and guidance as it rebuilds itself following the appointment of a new Board and CEO,” it said. –
