Labour unrest nests at Duma

The new radio station, Duma FM, sitting on a pending labour case of a woman who was allegedly fired because she was pregnant, now faces another in which a presenter, Lebogang 'Toni-Smith" Mudongo, claims she was forced to write a resignation letter by the management because 'they no longer wanted to work with her'.

{josquote}Mudongo says the director's wife runs the show and even her children meddle with the affairs of the radio station. She is a member of the Bahai faith. The lady also subjected staff to Bahai teachings against which she protested.{/josquote}

Mudongo says she was tormented by the wife of one of the directors of the Phakalane based radio station.

Mudongo says she started with the radio station as a freelance presenter but she also dabbled in with marketing.

She says when the station started broadcasting, their boss, Moreri Gabakgore, told them to concentrate on presenting.

Mudongo said her appointment was not clear and she was still waiting for Gabakgore to clarify her position. 

But she said life has never been easy for her at the station since the wife of one of the directors appeared on the scene. She said the director's wife told the employees that she was sent by the board to get the radio station off the ground.
