The case relates to an application brought against her by the Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse and the SAA Pilots Association to have her declared a delinquent director.

It dates back to March 2017.

It's not the first time Myeni failed to honour an appearance.

In February last year, Myeni failed to pitch up before the parliamentary portfolio committee on public enterprises.

The court has said that it will commence proceedings without her.
