Johannesburg - Outa and the SAA Pilots’ Association (SAAPA) have vowed to oppose any attempts by the former SAA chair Dudu Myeni to postpone their court application to declare the former airliner’s boss a delinquent director.
The application is set for hearing in the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria on October 7.
In March 2017, Outa and SAAPA filed the application to declare Myeni a delinquent director, arising from her actions as SAA chairperson from December 2012 to October 2017.
Outa spokesperson Stefanie Fick said such a declaration would block her from any position as a director saying SAA’s demise was largely attributed to the period under Myeni’s governance.
Expressing concern about a possible postponement Ficks said, on June 7 they received a notification from Myeni’s attorneys of record - Edward Nathan Sonnenberg (ENS) - that they were no longer handling the matter.
