EFF leader Julius Malema has reiterated that South African Airways will not be sold and that the party opposes the sale.
It has been over a week since the government confirmed the completion of a sale agreement with Takatso consortium.
Malema told a press conference on Monday that the sale of SAA is a deliberate attempt to privatize the state-owned company.
Takatso Consortium is set to purchase a 51 percent share in the ailing airline.
Over the following two years, the Consortium has promised to provide R3 billion.
However, the details of the agreement have been questioned, with Treasury claiming that SAA remains a government responsibility.
“We condemn and oppose the disposal of South African Airways because its disposal is not justifiable and corrupt. There’s absolutely no rationality on selling off an airline for R51 for people who are linked and controlled by the white capitalist establishment,” said Malema.
