Air crew back from Equatorial Guinea
The two South Africans who were held in Equatorial Guinea over a business dispute have arrived at Johannesburg International Airport. Ruwayda Kalbine and Seshan Pillay were flown from Malabo to Libreville on Wednesday morning before departing for South Africa. They had their passports returned on Tuesday night after a meeting between South African and Equatorial Guinean foreign affairs officials in Pretoria. Kalbine and Pillay went to the country to work as crew members for a local airline, but were detained because of a business dispute between the company that employed them and another airline. The pair were prevented from leaving Equatorial Guinea for more than a month.
