A PRIVATE investigation will be done after two Mpumalanga women were allegedly promised jobs in exchange for sex.
The DA will institute their own investigation after opening a corruption case at the Nelspruit Police Station yesterday.
The women, aged 33 and 43, claim an official who works at Rob Ferreira Hospital in Mbombela promised them cleaning jobs in exchange for sex.
“He convinced me to sleep with him on several occasions at his house. I did it because I thought my life would change for the better,” the woman told Daily Sun.
“I kept sleeping with him because he was raising my hopes. I even offered to give him money but he said he only wants my punani,” she said.
The woman said they reported the matter to the hospital but were apparently told it was a private matter.
“We went to the department of health and were told they would investigate. After they started their internal investigation we started receiving SMSes telling us they would kill us,” she said.
“We want him to face the law because we might not be the first or last victims.”
DA leader Mmusi Maimane, accompanied by provincial leader Jane Sithole, said they have started their own investigation.
“This is a serious matter because it is happening all over the country. We will continue with our investigation and write a letter to the health department to suspend the official.
“ In what country does an interview process include sex?” said Maimane.
Mpumalanga Health Department spokesman Dumisane Malamule said the matter was reported to them.
“We don’t have a right to charge the official because this is a private matter.
“But we encourage people to report cases of sexual harassment in exchange for jobs.”
