The Department of Communications and Digital Technologies welcomes the decision by the South African Post Office (SAPO) creditors to adopt the draft Business Rescue Plan following their meeting earlier today.

The SAPO Business Rescue Practitioners, Mr Anoosh Rooplal and Mr Juanito Damons as appointed after SAPO was placed under Business Rescue in July 2023, were tasked with the responsibility of developing and submitting a Business Rescue Plan by 30 November 2023. The draft Plan was published for comment by stakeholders on 23 November 2023.

“The timeous adoption of this BR Plan sets us on course in turning the tide in saving the South African Post Office in the interest of our developmental agenda as a country”, said Minister Mondli Gungubele.

“The SA Post Office remains an important institution in our postal services network nationally and in the SADC Region. Most importantly, we remain committed to ensuring that we build a South African Post Office of Tomorrow which provides quality, affordable and accessible services to the people of South Africa, particularly in this digital era,” concluded Minister Gungubele.
