Let peace reign

The story of Martha Matsheke who died shortly after being fired while receiving treatment for cancer is a sad one.

The story of Martha Matsheke who died shortly after being fired while receiving treatment for cancer is a sad one.

What touched the hearts of our readers is that she was relieved of her duties while in hospital and in pain.

Despite her condition, she managed to take the matter to the CCMA and was awarded R238200 for unfair dismissal. She unfortunately died before she could get the money.

Her husband has rightly claimed the money but the company has instead demanded R10000 allegedly owing from her and is also appealing the CCMA ruling.

We urge both parties to urgently resolve this matter amicably. The bereaved family needs closure on the matter and the late Matsheke needs to rest in peace.
