Former SAA Chair,Dudu Myeni failed to show up in court for a case seeking to have her declared a delinquent director.

According to Outa, Myeni called their legal team this morning to say she could not afford to travel to Pretoria for the court case. Judge Ronel Tolmay postponed the case until Tuesday to give her last chance to appear or face the prospect of having the case heard in her absence.

If she is declared a delinquent director she will be blocked from holding any position in the future.

The application by OUTA and SAAPA was launched in March 2017 after the organisation managed to halt a dodgy deal worth R256 million between SAA and BnP capital in 2016.

Speaking after the court proceedings, Outa Chief Executive Wayne Duvenage said the organisation was ready to proceed. He added he was not surprised by Myeni's no-show.

"She has played a good game of ducking and diving, it is the same behavior that she has previously demonstrated when she appeared before Parliament, he said."
