Numsa urges liquidators to carry on Murray's work following hit

The National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (Numsa) has called on the liquidators at Comair to ensure workers are paid their salaries following the killing of Cloete Murray.

Association says ‘no stone should be left unturned’ in search for Cloete Murray’s killers

The prominent liquidator and his son Thomas Murray were gunned down on the N1 in Midrand last week.

Murray worked on several high-profile cases, including on the controversial facilities management company Bosasa and the Guptas.

His company Sechaba Trust was appointed as the liquidator of Comair which owned British SA (South Africa) and Kulula airline.

Numsa spokesperson Phakamile Hlubi-Majola says they met with Cloete few days before his murder to get an update on the liquidation of the troubled airline.

"Murray informed us that the liquidation is not yet concluded, and the licence and certificate of the company remains intact, he also said they would attempt to get a suitable buyer who can buy the company, and, in this case, he seemed hopeful that there was in interest in purchasing the company.

"We were expecting that on the 28th of March, Murray was going to apply for an order from the court which would enable them as liquidators, to pay workers all their outstanding salaries which were due to them before the company went into liquidation."

Hlubi-Majola says although they share in the grief of Murray’s family, they want their members' salaries to be paid.

"It was also agreed that negotiations of the packages would commence soon, once the order had been obtained from the court.  We urge the remaining liquidators to finish the work, which was started by Murray, so that workers can be paid their salaries.”
