A SUPERVISOR, who is at the heart of a sex-for-jobs scandal unfolding at a retail outlet in Gweru, was suspended last week, H-Metro can reveal.
Abel Chikanya’s shenanigans with fellow female employees exploded after some of the workers were fired following a spate of theft cases.
He was recorded having a phone conversation with one of the fired workers who was unhappy that he didn’t provide her with any form of protection despite their adulterous relationship.
She also suggested that some of her fellow employees advised her that they also had relationships with Abel. Now, sources have told H-Metro that the supervisor was suspended last week.
“Several ladies have been complaining after they were sacked from their positions and the issue spilled into the ears of the management at the shop,” said the sources.
“It’s the same issue as that of (name withheld), these women also wanted this man to protect them and felt he used and dumped them.
“So, his failure to deal with their plight triggered this and opened a can of worms and there were a lot of these women who were threatening to expose him.
“He was caught in a very difficult situation, and it became only a matter of time before it spilled to the workplace, and this led to his suspension last week on Friday pending investigations into the matter.”
H-Metro has been handed some more leaked chats between Abel and another woman which appears to suggest that he just started sexually harassing her without him proposing love.
