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.
A judge in the Cape Town High Court on Tuesday displayed such blatant lack of empathy and arrogance with a complete disregard for the poor that it raises concerns about how our judicial system is still frought with systemic racism.
In his spate of remarks, Judge Leslie Weinkove shows that he clearly has no clue or simply chooses to ignore the impact which Systemic & Structural Racism has on the majority of South Africa's population.
Irrespective of the merits of the case, his attitude continues to uphold and is in fact a manifestation of the Systemic & Structural Racism which we need to eradicate.
