File: Outa says there are no more reasons to pour money into SAA.
JOHANNESBURG - The Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (Outa) is calling on the government to liquidate SAA.
Outa says there are no more reasons to pour money into the failed SOE.
The organisation says pouring more money into the airline will add unnecessary pressure on taxpayers and it's simply unaffordable.
"It is irresponsible to throw more money at SAA," said Outa executive manager, Julius Kleynhans.
"At the end of the day, they are talking about R24.9-billion for the business rescue plan, that is just to pay the debt back and to put some good severance packages together for the workforce that has to, unfortunately, lose their jobs."
Last week the government committed to assured SAA rescue practitioners that it will provide the necessary funding to the state-owned airline.
