Gov will still interfere. No matter what. They don't have an egg on their face. Too stupid to realize. They swimming in it.

Has "Wedge" Mantashe contracted Coroner, he is very vocal about the wastage at SAA but very quiet about the same situation at Escum. Keep throwing money at them and the next request for a bailout is not questioned or made conditional! Hey Wedge, maybe you should go look for treatment at the new hospital in China you farkin idiot!
One thing I agree with is to get rid of all the non functioning SOE's but it must apply to all SOE's receiving bailouts.

Can you imagine... A 737 pulling up in the yellow line on the N2 between EL and PE en route to Cape Town from Durbs to pick up a few passengers.
:laugh: ^ This, a few mid air collisions here and there, route wars and hijacked planes scavenged for parts... But at least we will have a National plane service always filled with passengers.

Forward thinking by Gwede Mantashe.
He must be considering EWC once it has been turned around by private enterprise.

Every request to ATC is a demand - and comes through to all on frequency with blaring music in the background played through blown speakers.

ANC chairperson and energy minister Gwede Mantashe has urged the government to sell South African Airways (SAA), stating that the airline does not cater to the working class.

According to a report by The Sunday Times, Mantashe's views are in conflict with the ANC, with the minister arguing that if it is unable to make money, SAA must be sold to private buyers.
Eish........where do they get these goons??

I'm confused, why is Matashe talking so much sense lately?

Wonder if he's eyeing the top spot. Getting behind the **** stuff the tax payers care about could land him a good deal of power.

Edit: FFS man, why can't we swear on this forum?
