If you have been curious as to what #OccupyMultiChoice is all about, then listen up.
The matter stems from a 2014 incident, when a female MultiChoice employee first accused a colleague of kidnap, sexual assault and rape.
According to MultiChoice, the matter was dealt with.
Now the video entertainment company has been forced to launch a “full-scale investigation” after the above hashtag started circulating, “along with the name of the victim and that of one of the alleged rapists,” reports HuffPost:
In a statement, MultiChoice said the incident occurred in 2014 and that a case had been opened with the police, which resulted in the conviction of one of the accused:
“The company has provided this employee with support since this traumatic incident and will continue to do so.
“This includes helping her find accommodation, getting her counselling, giving her time off to attend the court case, and granting her extended medical leave.
“This employee reported an incident to us in 2014 in which she was kidnapped and sexually assaulted. No allegation of the involvement of co-employees was made at that time.
“We’ve recently learned of these further allegations involving our employees, which is why we’ve launched an immediate and a full-scale investigation to get to the bottom of this matter, as we take these allegations very seriously.
“The accused staff member identified on social media denies the allegations.”
Adopted by social media users to gear up support against the company for not doing enough to support the victim, here’s a taste of the #OccupyMultiChoice, which can be found alongside #JusticeForGabisileNgcobo:
Here’s a look at the emails:
And the reply:
Cheers? Oh no you didn’t.
Now, there has been a call for a protest outside the MultiChoice in Randburg, Johannesburg, today at 10AM – or any other regional office across the country:
MultiChoice is aware of the plans and will “make sure there are appropriate security measures in place”.
