The African National Congress’ Women’s League (ANCWL) says it will meet with the party’s deputy secretary-general Jessie Duarte to come up with ways to help an ANC employee who has accused its spokesperson of sexual harassment.
The 26-year-old woman wrote a 14-page letter to Duarte last month explaining her ordeal at the hands of her boss Pule Mabe.
She says he tried to have sex with her in return for the job and cut her salary after she rebuffed his sexual advances.
ANC women’s league secretary-general Meokgo Matuba says: “We have to have a meeting as soon as we can and look at the possible assistance that can be given to the young woman.”
The league has asked its mother body to consider suspending Mabe amid the serious allegation.
