The former chair of the board of South African Airways has been arrested and charged in court with corruption.

Dudu Myeni is accused of receiving bribes including security upgrades for her home from the company, Bosasa.

It has been implicated in numerous corrupt deals during Jacob Zuma’s presidency.

Last year a Commission of Inquiry concluded that Ms Myeni had influenced Mr Zuma to favour Bosasa, which was awarded government contracts worth more than $100m (£82m).

A director with a subsidiary of Bosasa, Trevor Mathenjwa, was also charged with corruption. They were both released on bail and are due back in court in November.
