Former Director of South African Airways (SAA) Chairperson Dudu Myeni has been declared a delinquent Director by the High court in Pretoria over her conduct while leading the broke airline’s board of directors.
The lifetime order means Myeni will no longer be considered fit and proper to hold the position of Director of any entity. She will have to vacate several directorships that she currently holds, including her position on the board of Centlec.
The court ruling found that Myeni caused the demise of a lucrative deal SAA was negotiating with Emirates, which could have saved SAA or at least strengthened its financial position.
However, the ruling did not sit well with the majority of Black Twitter as they alleged that the law is racist and anti-black. They said Myeni will remain the Queen in the eyes of the black majority.
