ANC condemns racially-charged attack on employee at Food Lovers

H Nyambi

The ANC condemns the recent incident at a Food Lover's Market store in Lenasia, south of Johannesburg, where a black worker was attacked by one of his senior co-workers for not wearing a Food Lover's cap while busy doing his chores. It appears that the act was racially motivated. An argument allegedly ensued which resulted in him being pushed around by the co-worker. The altercation was captured on a cellphone and the footage has since gone viral.

The ANC we will monitor the progress in the ongoing internal investigation by the company. We welcome the fact that the entire senior management at that branch had been replaced, while internal investigations continue. We also welcome the fact that all disciplinary hearings will be chaired by an independent external party and appropriate and correct disciplinary measures will be actioned where needed.

I thank you
