- Gugu Ncube, an ex-UNISA employee, staged a nude protest at the Union Buildings in Pretoria earlier today
- Video footage shows her expressing her anger prior to her arrest
- Ncube is protesting her dismissal and alleged sexual abuse suffered at UNISA
Gugu Ncube staged a nude protest at the Union Buildings in Pretoria earlier today.
The young woman was barely clothed as she stood outside the buildings with a poster, which detailed her grievances.
Ncube claims to have been unfairly dismissed and to have been the victim of sexual abuse at the University of South Africa (UNISA).
She claims she was forced to leave her job at UNISA as a result of refusing to sleep with her manager.
Video footage reveals how Ncube angrily expresses her frustration at the situation.
She is calling on the United Nations to intervene as her pleas to the Unisa vice-chancellor, Prof Makhanya, have fallen on deaf ears.
According to her, Makhanya threw her out "like a rotten pig".
Ncube also claims to have reached out to President Cyril Ramaphosa.
The Daily Sun reported that Ncube was arrested earlier today and UNISA has issued a statement in response.
They claim that Ncube was never an employee of UNISA as she was contracted by a separate entity.
UNISA’s statement also confirms that they’ve investigated Ncube’s allegations but that there was no basis to charge the relevant staff members.
Sihle Magubane said, “If ECECE is not part of Unisa then why did you intervene in the dispute and dismiss Unisa staff members, your statement has so many inaccuracies and it’s sad how you choosing to deal with this issue. You have a choice to either be cold and out of touch or ye to reach out to the lady and offer support!”
