saa thumb medium95 76ANA reports that former SA Airways (SAA) chief financial officer (CFO) Phumeza Nhantsi on Wednesday indicated that she had filed a case of unfair dismissal with the CCMA against the national airline.  

SAA last week fired Nhantsi and acting chief executive Musa Zwane, having earlier suspended them for recommending to the board that the carrier should sign a deal with financier BnP Capital to raise R15 billion to consolidate its debt.  This was in return for a R256 million fee.  Nhantsi said the company fired her on the basis of unfounded allegations and added:  “Simply put, SAA was required to prove that I was guilty of misconduct and not depend solely on speculation or unfounded allegations.”  She claimed that she had made submissions prior to her dismissal, but these were not given due consideration.  SAA spokesman Tlali Tlali said that all the company could say at this stage was that it noted Nhantsi’s decision to approach the CCMA.
