Former South African Airways (SAA) board chairperson Dudu Myeni was arrested on Friday on charges of corruption and fraud exceeding R300 000 for gratifications offered and received from Bosasa and its subsidiary Sondolo IT.
Former Sondolo IT director Trevor Mathenjwa was also arrested and subjected to the same charges.
They each received bail of R10 000.
The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) has asserted that Myeni failed in her legal duty to disclose her interests in terms of the SAA Conflict of Interest Policy.
“Myeni thus stands accused of corruption for receiving gratification from Bosasa subsidiary Sondolo IT, offered by Trevor Mathenjwa, the company’s former director. Myeni is accused of having received security upgrades for her Richards Bay premises during May 2014 and March 2015, to the value of R200 000. She is further accused of benefitting from hotel accommodation and travel expenses for her and persons close to her, from Bosasa, facilitated by Blake Travels, between May 2014 and March 2015 for over R107 000,” said NPA spokesperson Sindisiwe Seboka.
The matter returns to court on November 17.
