Capetonians protested outside the Heart FM studios on Wednesday, December 22 after information came forward regarding a former employee who had lodged four grievances of sexual harassment against a manager, but nothing came of it.
According to the latest information that surfaced, the former radio station employee allegedly had to sign a non-disclosure agreement before she left the organisation. IOL reported that the CCMA documents with the grievances were seen by the Cape Times.

Amongst the protesters were activist and rape survivor Revered June Dolley-Major who indicated that the alleged perpetrator has been reported by the former employee as well as by Clarence Ford.
“Why is this particular person, who is clearly a problem, with bullying and sexual harassment… still working here? Clarence reported him and so did the survivor,” Dolley-Major reiterated.
Meanwhile, fellow radio personality Aden Thomas paid tribute to Clarence Ford for all the years that he has been working in radio and for paving the way for many Capetonians in the industry.
