Oh dear; Uber streak continues and this time around it's struck a victim in Mzansi. Last night, South African singer and songwriter Nikki Williams tweeted that she had been harassed by an Uber cab driver who tried to grab and kiss her.
According to Uber SA, the cab service has since fired the driver. But wait, don’t these drivers get screened before becoming taking on the job for Uber?
This is not the first time an Uber cab driver has been accused of sexual assault. Just weeks ago, New Delhi and Boston Uber cab drivers were arrested amidst allegations of raping passengers.
To make matters worst, this week actress and radio personality Pearl Thusi was involved in a car accident and guess what she was riding? Yup, an Uber cab. Even after the accident Pearl had to pay for the service which she later complained about and urged Uber to train their staff in car accident situations.
Thank goodness Nikki, Pearl and her daughter managed walk away from all incidents unscathed..
