Johannesburg - Former ANC deputy secretary-general Cheryl Carolus says she wants her country back and has encouraged others to come before the Zondo commission to assist it in its investigation of state capture.
Carolus concluded her testimony on Thursday and told the inquiry about her tenure as the chairperson of the South African Airways (SAA) board.
She served on the board from 2009 until 2012 when she and eight other board members resigned in relation to their strained relationship with then public enterprises minister Malusi Gigaba.
She told the inquiry of how Gigaba, who had been appointed to replace Barbara Hogan who was fired in 2010, worked against the board’s efforts to turn-around SAA.
The last straw for her and fellow board members was when Gigaba lied and told Parliament in 2012 that the airline's inability to submit its financial statements for the 2011/2012 financial year was because the statements were not ready.
