African Infrastructure Investment Managers (AIIM), a subsidiary of Old Mutual, has been accused of racism, intolerance and prejudice towards its female employees of colour.

Four women, who asked to remain anonymous for fear of further victimisation, wrote to Old Mutual two weeks ago to voice their concerns about about what they termed “bullying” and which they say the company had not responded to until on Thursday evening after the Cape Times sent Old Mutual questions.

"White South Africans love to bash affirmative action. With a lot of the bashing being based on false information, we thought we would take a closer look" writes Nic Andersen in The South African.

Affirmative action, BEE, BBBEE, or maybe even white privilege. For many white South Africans, these are terms that irritate them or they’re “sick of” hearing about. If you’re one of those people, then you probably think affirmative action is “unfair”.

Before we dive into this, let’s look at why the Department of Labour says affirmative action is necessary.
