Dudu Myeni claims that her former legal team had given her misleading advice in her case against the Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (OUTA).

The ex-chair of SAA is facing a motion to have her declared a 'delinquent director' following her botched time at the state-owned entity.

Myeni had originally pleaded guilty to certain charges against her but now wishes to change direction, SABC reports.

OUTA dubbed the case a storm in a teacup following this latest news, with the case already postponed four times this month.

Briefly.co.za reported that the politician - who allegedly has close ties to former president Jacob Zuma - had cried poverty when she had been due to appear.

This had led to countless offers for transport, accommodation and more in a bid to hold Myeni accountable.

Should OUTA's quest to have her declared a delinquent director prove successful, Myeni would be barred from holding any executive position in South Africa.
