Dudu Myeni argues her previous lawyer lied to her, court rules against her plea

The High Court in Pretoria has ruled that former South African Airways (SAA) board chair Dudu Myeni cannot change her previous admission on the civil case seeking to declare her a delinquent director.

The court also ruled against Myeni having other previous SAA directors added to her case.

Last week Myeni's new lawyers argued that her previous lawyer did not advise her correctly.
