SA Express announces the Departure of its Acting CEO, Mr Victor Xaba
All good things come to an end.  We are sad to announce the departure of the acting Chief Executive Officer, Mr Victor Xaba, who joined us in April 2017.  As you are aware, his appointment was an interim secondment from Denel Aerospace. 
Mr Xaba will rejoin Denel Aerospace with immediate effect and we would like to take this opportunity to thank him most sincerely for his unflagging dedication to the company, his hard work and determined effort to achieve so much in a very short space of time.
We would also like to take this opportunity to wish him the very best in all his future endeavors.
Shareholder has appointed Ms Matsietsi Mokholo, as interim Acting Chief Executive Officer.  Ms Mokholo is currently serving as the Deputy Director-General: Legal, Risk and Compliance at the Department of Public Enterprises.   She brings a wealth of experience, especially in strategic management.  She has successfully served at complex state owned enterprises and is believed to be well equipped to add immense value to SA Express Airways.   We would like to congratulate her on her appointment.
Please note that due to mandatory Shareholder governance processes, the actual arrival of Ms Mokholo will be delayed until all processes have been completed.  
In the meantime, Mr Edwin Besa, will act as Chief Executive Officer in her stead.   We encourage employees to support Mr Besa during this period. 
Mr. George Mothema
Chairman of the Board
