Meanwhile, SAA board chairperson Dudu Myeni reportedly linked the problems she is facing at the national carrier to her being a woman.
Redi Tlhabi on Wednesday asked listeners to share their views on the state of South African parastatals.
Listen to the calls below:
Is it not better to let SAA go bankrupt, close them down... and let market forces and private companies take over and provide us with a decent service?— Roy, listener
I think it's becoming easy to say what Dudu Myeni is saying without any intervention... I think what (Dudu) Myeni is doing is unfortunate.— Simphiwe, listener
I think it's time that this government wakes up and realises that this country should be run like a business; we don't have a tap that you open and money comes out. SABC, SAA, shut it down and let people with business brains run it...— Jason, listener
