The Liberated Metalworkers Union (LIMUSA) is calling for the resignation of DENEL’s Group Chief Executive Daniel du Toit, after the arms manufacturer notified its employees that they would receive only 85% of their salaries for June.
State arms company Denel will pay its employees all their dues by Friday.
Minister of Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan says Denel employees will receive their full salaries.
Trade union Solidarity says Denel employees are being punished for the company’s financial mismanagement.
DENEL says it cannot guarantee its workers a future at the state arms manufacturing company because of its worsening cash-flow problems.
Arms manufacturer, RheinMetall Denel Munitions’ (RDM) is building a new R10 million day-care centre in Macassar, near Somerset West.
Former Denel CEO, Riaz Salooje says he first met with two of the Gupta brothers and then Public enterprise minister Malusi Gigaba in 2012 at the family’s Saxonwold residence for a meeting.
The Commission of Inquiry into State Capture will continue its hearings in Parktown, Johannesburg, on Tuesday morning, with testimony from former chairperson of the board of arms manufacturer Denel, Marties van Rensburg.
The Commission of Inquiry into State Capture has heard that when former Public Enterprises Minister Lynne Brown took over Denel in 2014, the arms manufacturer’s performance was impressive and she even complimented staff for a commendable job.
The Black Management Forum says it has written a letter to Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan to establish whether there was no black person who could have filled the position of group chief executive of arms manufacturer Denel.
