WHAT HAP­PENED

BARELY A MONTH af­ter an SA Air­ways crew was caught at Lon­don’s Heathrow Air­port at­tempt­ing to smug­gle drugs into Bri­tain, mem­bers of an­other SAA crew were nabbed fol­low­ing a failed bid to smug­gle al­most 5kg of co­caine val­ued at more than £245 000. Twelve of the 15-mem­ber crew have since been re­leased from cus­tody. THE CI­TI­ZEN said SAA’s man­age­ment – in­clud­ing its CE, Khaya Nqgula – was re­spon­si­ble for the prob­lems af­fect­ing SA’s na­tional car­rier. Nqgula has since been placed on spe­cial leave pend­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tions into a com­pre­hen­sive union dossier al­leg­ing, among other things, con­flict of in­ter­est in the award­ing of con­tracts.
