Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) employee Catherine Kunje who was in the news two weeks ago for revealing the sexual harassment allegations at the work place is reportedly in the hiding after some unsuspecting people are sending her death threats.
Kunje, whose allegations were directly leveled against the state broadcaster Director General, Aubrey Sumbuleta is now said to have fled her matrimonial home to an undisclosed location where she is trying to run away from the mercenaries who are vying for her blood. In her allegations, Kunje mentioned of how her boss was seducing her into having sexual intercourse in return of industrial favours, and according to her, she had been turning down the proposals, something which had later made her time at the work place miserable.
According to the sources which have reliably informed this publication of the news, Kunje has now been removed from the Continuity duty roster for MBC Radio 1, which literally means that she is not going to be available in the foreseeable future. Meanwhile, it is still not established if the threats that she is receiving are coming from people who have the blessings of the Director General or just her nemesis who are afraid of having their names tarnished if she divulges into more details.
Under the immediate past regime of Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), it is said that the state broadcaster was captured by the party’s operatives popularly known as cadets and everyone who looked to have opposing views towards the regime was having a hard time at the institution. One such example is that of Ian Simbota, who is also Association of People with Albinism (APAM) President, and after continuously questioning the government’s policy towards the protection of the people with albinism, he drew a wrath with his bosses which later ended up into his dismissal on trapped up disciplinary misconducts.
