SAA Funding

The Daily Maverick reports that when the Cabinet meets within the next two weeks, ministers will be asked to make more budget cuts in crucial service delivery programmes. This will be over and above the departmental budget cuts of at least 20% that were pencilled into the June supplementary budget…they will be asked to reprioritise funds to save SAA. SAA requires R10.4-billion to fund the implementation of its business rescue plan, which proposes paying unsecured creditors nearly R2-billion over three years, retrenchment packages worth R2.2-billion to 2,000 workers, and funding the restart of the airline’s flights in January 2021.

The KwaZulu-Natal Social Development Department says it will make available officials in its offices to follow up on allegations of abuse in the embattled KwaSizabantu Mission Church. The church hit headlines on Saturday after News24 published the results of a seven-month investigation into the affairs of the mission, located in the Kranskop area, and allegations of a range of abuses. The report also alleged senior members accused of rape had been shielded, and that millions of rand had been laundered in the mission’s business operations. And, Police Minister Bheki Cele says he is aware of an investigation into KwaSizabantu Mission, as well as people who have “raised matters” with the mission.
