The issue was revealed by entertainment writer Phil Mphela whose tweets narrated the story.

"A female employee has lodged a sexual misconduct complaint against one of the senior bosses. The incident allegedly happened yesterday at Muvhango production offices."

It also came to light that although the victim did not get raped there was physical contact with the perpetrator.

"I can confirm that the Wednesday incident is alleged to have been physical.
It was not rape but there was physical contact. The accused is alleged to have even joked about sexual harassment whilst commiting the act. That’s the seriousness of it."

When Phil finally got a hold of the SABC PR head, they sent him a statement informing him that an internal investigation has been opened and the station has appointed an external mediator to solve the issue.

"SABC 2 has responded to my query about the sexual misconduct allegations at #Muvhango production offices. They say the have appointed an independent mediator in the matter."


It is unclear if the public will ever know who it is but judging from the tweets under Phil's thread, tweeps have a good idea who the perpetrator is and apparently the sexual harassment has been going on for a while now.
