Sunday World reports that the ANC paid an undisclosed amount of cash to a former personal assistant of Public Service and Administration Minister, Senzo Mcunu.
This follows a complaint by the woman that Mcunu had touched and kissed her inappropriately when he worked at the ANC Head-Office ( Luthuli House), in 2019.
Sunday world have seen a letter in which Mcunu alleges the woman, and not him, sent him inappropriate text WhatsApp messages, insisted on travelling with him on campaigns, although her job was office bound.
Mcunu said in the letter that he convened a meeting to advise Human Resources that he no longer wanted to work with the PA, but the woman did not attend the meeting.
He also alleges that the woman blackmailed him into appointing her as his chief of staff when he was appointed minister after the elections.
