Cape Town – South African Minister of Finance Enoch Godongwana has reportedly been accused of sexual harassment by a hotel employee at Kruger National Park in Mpumalanga.
According to News24, Godongwana recently went on a private trip to Skukuza.
A worker accused him of sexually harassing her while she was giving him a massage in his room.
A case was further opened against Godongwana by the worker.
However, Godongwana slammed the accusations and further said that he had not yet heard from the police on the matter.
“I have always upheld and respected the rights and dignity of women, and this allegation goes against everything I stand for,” Godongwana said as quoted by the report.
eNCA reported that the African National Congress (ANC) Women’s League has responded to the news and called for swift action against the minister.
“Meanwhile, the EFF wants Godongwana to be removed as minister. It is threatening to disrupt any gathering the Minister is addressing,” the report said.
