First Eskom, now SAA. Who next? Monwabisi Kalawe, who was suspended last year as SAA’s CEO due to allegations of serious misconduct, was appointed in 2013 to implement SAA’s turnaround plan. He has now decided to resign, meaning that further disciplinary hearings will no longer be necessary. A case of saving his own skin? – Tracey Ruff
JOHANNESBURG, April 24 (Reuters) – The suspended chief executive of South Africa’s state-owned airline SAA, Monwabisi Kalawe, stepped down with immediate effect on Friday, according to local news agency EWN.
Kalawe, who was suspended two months ago on grounds of misconduct and mismanagement, would become the sixth chief executive to leave the company in the last six years.
The airline could not be immediately reached for comment.
