Botswana: Air Botswana terminates GM's contract

Gaborone, Botswana (PANA) - The contract of the General Manager of Botswana’s national carrier, Tozivazvipi Dahwa, has been terminated and the board dissolved, the the airline announced on Wednesday.

Neil Fitt, permanent secretary in the Ministry of Transport and Communications, said the contract was mutually terminated.

“The Air Botswana board of management has also been dissolved. A new board will be appointed at the earliest possible time so that the operations of the organisation are not affected,” said Fitt.

Fit said Air Botswana Finance Manager, Agnes Khunwane, would hold the fort until a substantive acting general manager was appointed.

Dahwa was appointed in July last year and was expected to see the national airline well capitalized, consistently delivering on its mandate and excelling to become a regional leader.

Sakhile Nyoni-Reiling, the former General Manager, also resigned from Air Botswana in 2013 after a short stint.

Air Botswana, one of the parastatals under Ministry Transport and Communications, has the mandate to deliver efficient domestic and regional air travel.
