CAPE TOWN – The Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) held very little back when it condemned and denounced Finance Minister Tito Mboweni’s statement about SAA, describing it as reckless.
In a strongly worded statement Cosatu said it had noted with deep alarm the statements by the Finance Minister during an investment conference in New York, where he suggested that state-owned SAA should be closed down.
Mboweni was speaking at an investor conference in New York on Thursday night, when he said that decisions over the future of the state-owned airline were not under his remit.
“This is the second time that Minister Tito Mboweni has been spouting his personal positions that are not ANC policies. He has previously shot his mouth on e-tolls despite the ANC position on the matter,” said Cosatu.
