This is slightly old news - reported first by City Press about a week ago. But nonetheless hugely worrying that the board has members who support the crooks.
FWIW - my view is that gvt has committed R12.4 bn and three years to turn it around and VJ may the one man who can do it. Therefore he needs to be given a full chance. If he succeeds that R12 bn may be worth R50 bn in a few years. But if the breakers are on the ascendancy then the whole risky enterprise of trying to turn it around must be called off.

Wet Lease suggests that they have already run out of pilots. Overdid the unpaid leave contract offers?
