On Thursday morning, Gagasi FM radio presenter, Nonjabulo Zwane and Bright Ntuli-Kunene walked out mid-air citing workplace exploitation and mistreatment.
Taking to Twitter, the morning show presenter, Zwane recalled how in 2018, Eskom employee Thembisile Yende was murdered by a fellow employee who was her boyfriend at the time.
Zwane went on to reveal anxiety she has experienced in a Uber with a male driver. Her comments come at a time where the spotlight is on violence against women in South Africa.
In her tweets, Zwane shun a light on behaviour women are allegedly exposed to at their workplaces
“We live in a time where we can’t even count on colleagues to protect us from possible harm because they themselves are inappropriate with us on a daily!” tweeted Zwane.
The Durban radio station has acknowledged the ‘walk-off” both females and shared on Twitter that they “also stand in solidarity with them and the women and children of KZN as they continue to be unjustly harassed and murdered.”
We acknowledge the walk off by Njabs & Bright from #TheUprising. Both ladies are well and receiving adequate support. We also stand in solidarity with them and the women and children of KZN as they continue to be unjustly harassed and murdered.
