- Dudu Myeni recently missed a court appearance before claiming she couldn't afford to travel
- In a strange turn of events, her opposition in the legal battle has offered to solve that problem for her
- OUTA has offered to fly her in, cover her petrol and even pay for accommodation in their bid to hold her accountable
Dudu Myeni is 'playing the system', according to the Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse's CEO, Wayne Duvenage.
Speaking in an interview with 702, Duvenage revealed that they would be offering the former SAA chairperson financial assistance for her to appear in court to face them.
Briefly.co.za reported that Myeni had missed out on a court date against the organisation, which seeks to have her declared a 'delinquent director'.
Her defence was that she couldn't afford to travel, relaying her inability to attend court as she currently has no legal defence in the matter.
Duvenage, on the other hand, seems reluctant to buy into her excuse, revealing that the court date had been set over two years ago.
Sharing his opinion on the situation, the CEO says he feels that Myeni is taking her chances:
"We will make the offer of flying her up, paying for her petrol, putting her up in a bed-and-breakfast. Legal Aid is there. She cannot just not pitch up! She’s playing the system."
Accused of irregular multi-million-Rand deals and implicated in the State Capture Inquiry, Myeni is facing the legal bid to have her barred from acting as a director for any company.
Currently the director of 13 South African entities, many feel that Myeni's financial situation is far from the real reason she is shying away from appearing in court to face the music.
