saa thumb medium95 76The Citizen reports that besieged SA Airways (SAA) board chairperson Dudu Myeni has received backing from the unexpected quarter of City of Johannesburg councillor Leanne Williams.  

She believes Myeni is under attack because she is fighting corruption at the national carrier and has started the ‘Hands off Dudu Myeni’ campaign, aimed at defending Myeni against ‘white male corruption’.  Williams claimed corruption was so rife at SAA, Myeni became the target once she started showing determination to bring the scourge to a halt.  She went on the say:  “If there’s abuse against one woman, that is abuse against us all.  Before I’m a politician, I’m a woman and women must learn to stand together.”  Williams had tough words for EFF leader Julius Malema, whom she said had insinuated that Myeni had slept her way to the top.
