Trade unions Satawu and Nehawu yesterday expressed shock at the appointment of former Limpopo roads and transport head Ntau Letebele as new CEO of Great North Transport (GTN), which is a subsidiary of the Limpopo economic development agency, a provincial government entity. Letebele, who is under an internal investigation over a multi-million rand tender, resigned as head of the roads and transport department earlier this month. Satawu demanded that GTN's board reverse the decision as it only served the interests of "provincial cronyism". Failing this, Satawu members would go on strike.
