SEX PEST MUNICIPAL MANAGER FINALLY FIRED MEDIA STATEMENT ISSUED BY UDM NATIONAL SPOKESPERSON (8 MARCH 2007)

The UDM welcomes the firing of the Municipal Manager of Aganang Municipality, who had been implicated in sexual harassment. The resolution of the matter is overdue and it is unfortunate that it took so long to act consider the high office occupied by this person. The delays have damaged the integrity and image of the office of Municipal Manager and by extension the entire municipality. Now that action has been taken we hope that it will serve as an example to others.

The abuse of power and sexual harassment cases that have come to light of late is cause for concern. It is evident that Government does not have uniform and appropriate strategies to prevent this, or to deal with complaints quickly and fairly when they do arise.
