The South African government has dismissed the media reports suggesting that it has taken a decision to move South African Airways (SAA) out of National Treasury to the Department of Transport.
“The reports are incorrect. No such decision had been taken by Government.” said the Presidency in a media statement.
“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 (SOE), 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.
