Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported that South African businesswoman and former SAA chairperson Dudu Myeni has snubbed the Zondo Commission Inquiry into State Capture and failed to appear.

Myeni was served a summons by the Commission but still did not arrive to give her testimony. Her legal representatives said that Myeni was told that she still had to appear at the Commission, even after she asked for a postponement.

She said that she could not be present because she was not based in Gauteng. Myeni asked if there could be another date that she appears and her lawyer asked if she could rather make her testimony through an online video call.

According to a report by News24, Myeni says she needs more time to respond to the arguments that have been given to her. She wants to respond in the best way that she can.

Myeni refused to answer questions posed to her by her State Capture Commission back in November, according to TimesLIVE.

She argued that she didn't want to risk incriminating herself.
