Dudu Myeni is reported to have landed a top job as adviser to Transport Minister Joe Maswanganyi.

This comes only months after Myeni was removed as South Africa Airways board chairperson following a string of scandals.

The controversial  appointment, which could see Myeni net more than R1 million a year, comes as government considers moving South African Airways from National Treasury to the Transport Department.

Maswanganyi confirmed that a national review was under way to move SAA to his department.

He also defended the appointment of Myeni, who is a friend of President Jacob Zuma, saying she had been “highly recommended”, but would not say by who.
