Malusi Gigaba, the South African Finance Minister has expressed full confidence in South African Airways (SAA) chairperson Dudu Myeni and the airline’s board of directors.

He wants to put in measures to instil better governance at the board level of SAA‚ saying he was convinced that the airline was capable of turning around its fortunes.

His attitude towards Myeni‚ who is said to enjoy the support of President Jacob Zuma‚ is in contrast with that of his predecessor Pravin Gordhan who took a hard-line against the SAA board chair.
