DA welcomes appointment of competent Jarana as SAA CEO - Alf Lees

Vuyani Jarana has been appointed as new CEO for SAA

The financially bleeding South African Airways (SAA) has appointed Vodacom Business CEO Vuyani Jarana as its CEO.

He will commence his duties after Vodacom has officially released him.

Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba's spokesperson, Mayihlome Tshwete, said that Cabinet approved Jarana's appointment on Wednesday.

Last month, the airline received another bailout, of about R2.3-billion, with no stringent conditions attached.

The Sunday Times reported in June that SAA chairperson Dudu Myeni attempted to halt an SAA board meeting aimed at approving Jarana's nomination, as she wanted a different candidate placed.

The DA welcomes the appointment of Mr Vuyani Jarana as the CEO of SAA.

Democratic Alliance MP Alf Lees, who is also the party's deputy spokesman on finance, said Jarana has an "impressive record in business".

"In an organization as complex as SAA, one person in a leadership position is not going to be sufficient if he hasn't got 100 percent support from the board", Iraj Abedian, chief executive officer at Pan-African Investments and Research Services in Johannesburg, said by phone.

Vodacom is the market leader in South Africa with 37 million subscribers in the country.
