- Former SAA chairperson Dudu Myeni missed her second court appearance on Tuesday
- Myeni claims that she couldn't afford to foot the bill for travel, adamant that she was targeted because of her relationship with Jacob Zuma
- With numerous offers from entities to help her make it to court, citizens seem unconvinced of Myeni's motives
Dudu Myeni has, for the second time, skipped out on her court appearance against the Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse.
Briefly.co.za reported that the organisation had offered to cover the former SAA executive's travel costs after she cried poverty when she missed her first appearance.
eNCA has joined the movement, along with OUTA, to help her fund her travel and accommodation expenses in a bid to see her facing the music for questionable dealings during her time at the state-owned entity.
With the matter - which has been two years in the making - postponed until Thursday, Myeni appears unlikely to surface.
Speaking exclusively to Independent Media, Myeni claims that she has been targeted because of her relationship with ex-president Jacob Zuma:
“This is political. The only reason I'm being targeted is that I'm the chairperson of the Jacob Zuma Foundation. My suspicion is that I'm attacked because of my proximity to President Zuma."
Citizens shared their views on Myeni's claim that she was too broke to journey from KwaZulu-Natal to Gauteng to face the music.
Take a look at some of their reactions to the situation below:
