Accuser shares the awkward moments
"He was given the room numbers and keys; room 71, 260 and 261; to which he allocated the driver room 7 , that was too far apart than the ones he allocated him and I. My heart began pumping so hard. For a moment I felt like digging myself a hole."
"How could someone I regarded as a brother, a leader and a comrade do this? Wanting to get into bed with me? Isn't this man supposed to be my boss?"
"When I asked why doesn't he do his assignment in his room, he insisted that he would sleep if he was alone in the room, so being in my room would help him."

Yesterday Pule Mabe said he had seen the news in the media about the alleged harassment and was in contact with the officials in the ANC to understand the merit of the case.
"I will have appreciated to have been made aware where there were instances of violation.
"I am yet to understand the full merit of the case and I will be able to respond accordingly as soon as I have all the details," he said.
Mabe said it was important that if there were issues that colleagues were uncomfortable with, they seek counsel from elders in the ANC, something he would consider doing.
"I was raised by a single mother and believe firmly in the rights of women. I always strive to preserve and defend the peace of others and have therefore agreed to submit myself to the process that my organisation, the ANC, has established in order to attend to the matter at hand.
"I will not want to be pre-emptive and will be subjecting myself to the discipline of our movement. It is important that as comrades we find ways of coexisting harmoniously and without any strain."
