She was protesting naked because ‘nudity is a sign of my dignity that l have been stripped of’. She had said she was protesting n@ked because “nudity is a sign of my dignity that l have been stripped of”. “I have nothing more to protect, my dignity.”
Ncube added: “All l want is for President (Cyril) Ramaphosa to take note of the @buse I am suffering at the hands of Unisa and the South African Police.
I want the University of South Africa management to show the country, Thuma foundation, Commission for Gender Equality and other interested parties, my resignation letter they claim I tendered. This is my demand.
“I was unlawfully manhandled out of my employment at Unisa for reporting my immediate boss for asking for s.e.xual favours in exchange [for] my job,” said Ncube
I have seen corrupt police come to arrest me unprocedurally because my abuser has money to pay them. I will be heard,” said Ncube, who had removed most of her clothes.
Wearing black knickers and a red top, Ncube held up a placard before she was arrested. Police spokesperson Captain Daniel Mavimbela confirmed the arrest, saying a woman “was arrested in the morning for public indecency, and she is still in custody”.
