Johannesburg- The Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) has come out to say the racially charged email, allegedly written by a senior CCMA commissioner, is a fake.
Twitter exploded on Monday when an email was posted on a Twitter account, which claimed that a senior commissioner at the Benoni branch of the CCMA, mistakenly sent a racist email that referred to employees at an arbitration as “corrupt monkeys”.
I work @CCMA Benoni. Last wk I got email from a snr comisioner van Eck while he was in abitration of people who used to work for ACSA. It was to me by mistake. He call them monkeys. Please expose his racism. Most white coms here are racist @tumisole @enca @somizi #johnsteenhuisen pic.twitter.com/KNCzS7zU9t

CCMA spokesperson Dumisani Mavundla said they dispute the validity of the email.
“It’s not a CCMA email. We are internally investigating the matter. Our emails are watermarked. I asked Mampuru Mampuru to send me the details of the email and I am still waiting.”
Many demanded some action from the CCMA.
Get this guy fired by end of the week please! 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽 https://t.co/kObhVTTD2g

CCMA asked accuser to produce original email. He cant come up with it. CCMA says email is fake. When you "forward" an email you can add or delete anything to the email body. Yeses you lot pic.twitter.com/e6PZgdaECr

If this is how they view complainants, makes you wonder how objective they are in their process. Whose agenda are they pursuing?
