Former SAA chairperson Dudu Myeni
Eyewitness News reporter Edwin Ntshidi says Myeni’s argued that her former lawyer did not advise her correctly.

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.

Eyewitness News reporter Edwin Ntshidi has more.

She argued via her lawyer that she needed to change the plea because her previous lawyer did not advise her accordingly.

The judge said she is a very educated person so how come didn't she read her plea correctly and wants to change it now after two and a half years.

She also argued that her previous lawyer lied to her and she didn't understand the legal implications of that plea.
