Former SAA chairperson Dudu Myeni has failed to appear before the Eskom Inquiry (SOE Inquiry). Myeni was meant to explain why she, along with former president Jacob Zuma was interfering at Eskom.
EWN reporter Lindsay Dentlinger says that Myeni told the SOE Inquiry that she would not be attending, as her lawyer was unavailable.
She said her lawyer was out of town and he only returned yesterday and has not had enough time to appraise himself with these hearings and the legality around Dudu Myeni appearing here today.— Lindsay Dentlinger, EWN reporter
Dentlinger reports that Myeni did not respond to the committee in writing. She instead sent a string of text messages to the committee secretary stating that she would not appear until her lawyer determined whether appearing at the SOE Inquiry would be in her best interest.
As you can imagine, that has incensed MPs that she has the gall to give them that excuse. Some of them want her to be subpoenaed immediately to appear, saying they want a response from her in writing by Friday, and they want her to appear next week.— Lindsay Dentlinger, EWN reporter
