JOHANNESBURG — SA Express has said it is is not aware of a liquidation order that has been granted against the airline from Mothebe Shuttle Services, as claimed in a Financial Mail article on Thursday.
A spokesperson for the airline also said while SA Express had a contract with Mothebe Shuttle Services for R1.3 million a year, that contract had subsequently been flagged as irregular.
“Mothebe Shuttle Services is among the contracts that were identified by a recent forensic investigation as irregular.
“The investigation also implicated SA Express procurement staff who were later charged with gross misconduct. The airline has since opened criminal cases against the accused.
“The contract has also been reported as one of the irregular contracts to the Zondo Commission of Enquiry,” the spokesperson said.
