SMC South Africa Employee Loses Job for using k-word

Published

on

An employee of SMC South Africa Alochna Moodley, who admitted to using the k-word in reference to a black flight captain and passengers in an SMS, has been dismissed from work with immediate effect.



“A recent incident has been brought to the company’s attention [and] at SMC [Pneumatics], we do not tolerate any form of racism,” said Kevin O’Carroll, managing director at SMC South Africa.

This follows Moodley calling two black passengers – Reverend Solumuzi Mabuza and Sibusiso Magubane – as well as Captain Menzi Mvelase by the k-word on a flight from OR Tambo International to King Shaka Airport last Friday night.

She was called out by Mabuza, who was seated next to her and saw her typing the k-word on her phone, when she was expressing anger that someone on the flight was drunk while another person was “sniffing”.

Moodley was immediately escorted off the Kulula.com flight when the incident was brought to the airline crew’s attention.

On her part, Moodley admitted her offence to newsmen and blamed it on being frustrated.

She said: “It was a mistake on my side, I am not going to deny that I said those things.

“Yes, it’s wrong for me to make those racial remarks but it was my SMS, so why was he [Mabuza] looking at my phone?

He invaded my privacy and I feel like this thing was blown out of proportion,” she said at the time.

Nigeria: Code of Conduct Tribunal Orders Onnoghen’s Arrest

Published

on

The Inspector General of Police and the Director of the Department of State Services have been ordered to arrest the suspended Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Walter Onnoghen by The Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT) and produce him in court on the next adjourned date.


Chairman of the Tribunal, Danladi Umar, on Wednesday, issued the bench warrant against Onnoghen following his absence in court for arraignment.

 The Tribunal had at its last sitting on February 4, ordered that Onnoghen must make himself available in court today February 13, for arraignment over alleged failure to declare his assets.

Onnoghen was not in court as at the time the matter came up on Wednesday and his lawyers led by Adegboyega Awomolo, SAN prayed the court to take all pending applications relating to the trial, particularly the issue of the tribunal’s jurisdiction to hear the matter.

Prosecution counsel, Aliyu Umar SAN, however urged the court to address the issue of the defendant’s absence in court for his arraignment before the application on jurisdiction.

In a brief ruling, CCT Chairman recalled that he had insisted that the defendant appear in court today for arraignment and since he was not in court, he left the Tribunal with no choice than to order for his arrest.

He consequently ordered the Inspector General of Police and the Director General of the DSS to arrest Onnoghen and produce him in court on Friday, February 15 for arraignment.
