Dudu Myeni in hot water for allegedly assaulting photographer

Pietermaritzburg – Former SAA board chairperson Dudu Myeni has come under fire for allegedly assaulting a Sunday Times photographer at Jacob Zuma’s corruption trial on Monday, April 11.

Myeni was spotted at the Pietermaritzburg High Court after the corruption trial of the former president was cancelled. It was outside the court, in the foyer when she was approached by photographer Sandile Ndlovu who tried taking pictures of her.

According to reports Myeni was in conversation with avid Zuma supporter Carl Niehaus, when Ndlovu started taking pictures of her.

In a video taken by Netwerk24’s Melinda Stuurman, Myeni can be seen trying to get the camera from Ndlovu. She then grabs hold of his bag in an attempt to stop him from taking further pictures of her.

There is no indication that the Ndlovu or the publication will be pressing charges against Myeni at this stage.

“The media is entitled to report on events in court buildings, to photograph individuals and their supporters outside court, and to cover proceedings inside the court room with the permission of the presiding officer,” said the publication, condemning the incident.
