A manager at a Somerset West KFC has been suspended after allegedly calling employees 'a bunch of monkeys'.
Some employees also said the manager threatened to fire them after they went to their union about the alleged racial slur.
According to the employees, the manager called them monkeys for the first time when it became known that an inspector would be visiting the store.
The employees chose to ignore the remark but it happened again and they decided to approach their union in June.
Some of the employees also claim they were threatened to be fired by the manager after they went to their union.
IOL News reports that the public affairs director of Africa-KFC stated the company condemns acts of discrimination.
Thabisa Mkhwanazi added that action would be taken against the allegation. There will be swift action to maintain the dignity of KFC while adhering to South African law.
