Basic Education Teachers Union of Zambia (BETUZ) Finance and Business Deputy General Secretary Beatrice Mwila has accused union President Cosmas Mukuka of sexual harassment.
Ms Mwila has narrated to QFM News in a walk-in-interview that she has decided to come out in the open because the alleged sexual advances by Mr. Mukuka have persisted.
She says her refusal to give in to Mr. Mukuka’s alleged sexual advances has resulted in her victimization and harassment at her work place.
Ms Mwila says she since reported the matter to the Zambia Police Service Victim Support Unit.
But when contacted for a comment, Mr. Mukuka denied working from the BETUZ secretariat while acknowledging being the union President.
Mr. Mukuka also acknowledged that Ms Mwila works for BETUZ but that her allegations are false.
Efforts to get a comment from the Police on whether they received the complaint from Ms Mwila proved futile by broadcast time.
