“I have a child of four months, I don’t know how I will be able to support my family now” said the emotional worker who claim he was assaulted and then fired by his employer.
According to the worker his colleagues made it extremely hard for him at work since he saw them steal from the employer.
“I rather said nothing about the theft, I was scared as I didn’t know what they would do, they are very dangerous people” he added.
The worker claim his colleagues went to the manager to report that he had smoked dagga on the premises.
He was then confronted by the manager.
“At first I wanted to dismiss the claim, I felt obligated to speak the truth because these colleagues gave me dagga before, I then confessed and told him the truth, I did smoke dagga.
I tried to reason with the manager and tried to explain about the colleagues who stole from the business, but he didn’t want to hear any of it, he then started hitting me.” the worker said.
According to police spokesperson Mpho Manyoba the man claimed that he was assualted with a blunt object that left him with a fractured arm.
Manyoba confirmed that a case of assault with the intent to cause grievous bodily harm has been opened and is under investigation.
