The City of Cape Town has allegedly been accused of acting immorally after refusing to promote a firefighter who faced unforeseen life-changing injuries in 2010.
According to IOL, Adam Damon’s injuries happened during a drill at the workplace. He will be taking his employer to the Constitutional Court due to his firefighter rank not being changed after the accident.
Damon looks to convince the Constitutional Court that the actions that were taken by the metro point towards unfair discrimination.
Meanwhile, South Africa deployed more than 100 local firefighters to Canada to assist with wildfires, as the country is currently experiencing record-breaking heat and associated dry weather, News24 reports.
The request for assistance came from the Canadian Inter-agency Forest Fire Centre, which has a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between Canada and South Africa asking for firefighting assistance.
