The opposition party, the Democratic Alliance(DA) will ask Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane to again  investigate allegations that South African Airways(SAA) chair, Dudu Myeni is liable for flagrant abuse of public funds.

Back in November 2016, the High Court in Pietermaritzburg found that the extension of Myeni’s term as chair of the water board was unlawful. She also serves as chair of the SAA board.

Myeni took trips as chair of the water board, totalling more than R670 000. This allegedly includes spending on five-star hotels, business class travel, a limousine ride and hotel room service.

The DA is now saying that Myeni should not have been allowed to be chair of the water board after the high court ruling.
