The ANC notes and welcomes the progress made with regard to the recent disruptions in the services of the SA Post Office. The SA Post Office has suffered a prolonged strike that has seen clients lose confidence in its ability to service the citizens.
This has led to the appointment of Dr Simo Lushaba, who has had to stabilise the institution, even though the financial situation has not improved.
It is important to note that although the SA Post Office has faced financial difficulties, Postbank has stabilised and the process towards the corporatisation of Postbank is still on track, as per the commitment of the ANC government.
The ANC calls upon unions and the leadership in the SA Post Office to engage with one another so that they avoid another strike, as this will further collapse the institution and will not assist in building confidence among customers and corporate clients. I thank you.
