Pilots: Corrupt Dudu Myeni trashed SAA, now there's evidence to put her in jail

Dudu Myeni is a household name in South Africa for playing a conspicuously corrupt and instrumental role in damaging South African Airways’ (SAA) prospects of being a profitable entity. Her actions have cost South African taxpayers billions of rands in bail-outs over the past decade, with another R2bn scheduled to cover staff redundancies, if business rescue practitioners get their way. Explosive evidence set out in a court case instigated by the Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (OUTA) and the SA Pilots’ Association has provided irrefutable evidence that should put Myeni behind bars if the National Prosecuting Authority picks up on it. A former primary school teacher with zero business acumen, Myeni - longstanding executive chair of the Jacob G Zuma Foundation - was appointed to the position of chair of the national carrier on the basis of her extremely close relationship with former president Jacob Zuma. In this podcast, BizNews editor-in-chief Alec Hogg picks up on the latest developments with Jimmy Conroy of the SAA Pilots' Association, who has been working with OUTA to hold Myeni to account for her deeds. The first victory was achieved last week. Ms Justice Ronel Tolmay’s 114 page judgment ensures that Myeni will never again participate as a director in a boardroom, either in the private or public sector. - Jackie Cameron
