- The National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (Numsa) and the South African Cabin Crew Association (SACCA) have come together to release a statement regarding the Rothschild family’s shady link to South African Airways (SAA) board member, Mark Kingston
- According to the unions, the Rothschilds are using similar tactics to the Guptas, in order to forward their personal agenda of State Owned Enterprises (SOE) privatisation
- The statement also accused Finance Minister, Tito Mboweni, of flippantly not caring about the future of SAA or of South Africa as a whole
The National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (Numsa) and the South African Cabin Crew Association (SACCA) have joined forces in order to take on the Rothschild family in a statement that accuses them of being involved in attempts to capture State Owned Enterprises (SOEs).
The Rothschilds are a wealthy family who have stakes in many businesses internationally, and have been compared by Numsa and SACCA to the infamous Gupta family, who have been accused on numerous counts of becoming involved in SA SOEs for personal gain.
According to The Citizen, the two unions’ statement says that the Rothschild family is attempting to push forward a privatisation agenda when it comes to SOEs such as South African Airways (SAA).

In their statement, Numsa and SACCA said that the Rothschilds are using an alleged link to SAA board member, Mark Kingston, in order to achieve this.
Subsequently, the unions have called for the removal of Kingston.
The statement also placed SA’s Minister of Finance, Tito Mboweni, under fire, accusing him not being interested in the future or stability of SAA.
Mboweni was accused of having a “reckless” disregard for the outcome of SAA’s future, Briefly.co.za gathered.
The unions organised a protest, which led to a meeting with SAA board members.
However, Numsa and SACCA found the meeting unsatisfactory and this in turn led them to draw up the recent statement which implicates Kingston and the Rothschilds.
Briefly.co.za found out that SAA were asked to comment, but declined.
