Former South African Airways board chairperson Dudu Myeni on Tuesday failed to appear Pretoria High Court where an application was scheduled to be heard to have her declared as a delinquent director.
She also didn’t arrive on Monday claiming she couldn't afford to travel from KwaZulu- Natal to Pretoria.
The court has given her two days to raise funds to travel from KwaZulu-Natal to Pretoria to attend her court case.
Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (Outa) chief legal officer Stefanie Fick joins Bongani Bingwa to discuss Myeni's no-show.
We don't know why she didn't come to court, maybe it is part of her strategy to delay.— Stefanie Fick, Chief legal officer - Outa
Fick says Outa's charges against Myeni for her to be declared as a delinquent director relates to Myeni's tenure as SAA board chairperson.
The shenanigans that went on at SAA are why we firmly believe it is struggling at the moment.— Stefanie Fick, Chief legal officer - Outa
She says the chairperson of the board has certain fiduciary duties they need to fulfil.
We strongly believe that her actions show she wasn't able to fulfill her fiduciary duties. We believe that she should never be a director of any company.— Stefanie Fick, Chief legal officer - Outa
