SAA Defends Ngqula Payout
South African Airways last week defended a payout of up to $3.5 million for its former CEO Khaya Ngqula saying the deal was approved by Public Enterprises Minister Brigitte Mabandla. The South African cabinet criticized the payment at its last meeting. Ngqula was placed on special leave in February and finally left the company in early March over corruption allegations. SAA argues that if he was still on special leave, he would be entitled to full pay and benefits. If charges are proved in an upcoming investigation, Ngqula will face fines regardless of the payout.
