“When we actually met with Mr Mngadi he mentioned an opportunity that was available at SAA. Before we could even meet, he had already forwarded an RFI which I have asked the guys at the office to look at and see what it required. He gave us an overview of the opportunity and his experience as far as SAA is concerned,” Mahlangu said.
“He did mention to us a company - Inline Trading - that he said we are going to partner with,” he said.
Mngadi however did not want his name to appear in the bid.
