Shoprite supermarkets in Johannesburg south closed their doors on Wednesday as angry employees downed tools and called for the suspension of a regional manager who allegedly called workers "lazy k*****s".

Workers shut down the Southgate and Ridgeway supermarkets and threatened to close down more stores which fall under the regional manager. They said they had suffered enough abuse and vowed to protest until the manager was suspended.

The alleged k-word incident on Saturday caused outrage. "We have been quiet because she is a boss, we are scared of being fired because we need the jobs," said an employee who spoke on condition of anonymity due to fear of victimisation.

Here,
President said that the internet and social media are helping fuel mass shootings k-words, and he has directed the US Justice Dept. to work with local agencies and social media companies to detect attackers before they strike. "We can and will stop this evil contagion."

Did he actually say it?
Or was workers unhappy because thet got pressured to do there work and decided to play the fake (words hurts my feelings ) card to get rid of him.

We demand that [the manager] is suspended with immediate effect or we will shut down loot and burn down all these supermarkets in Joburg," said Mabota.

This was probably an attempt to stimulate another looting frenzy but Shoprite was prepared to close down.

Dumbasses, the CCMA would have a field day if someone fired you over this and you'd probably even get a fat white guilt anti-revolutionary payout.
Instead let's "protest" and cause maximum media damage to the place you work at.

Well, seeing as Christo Wiese is the owner/chairman of shoprite..... isn't it possible that both the foreign and local "protests" are actually actions against "WMC"?

Evidence or playing the RC to get their way, that's the question. But she's white so she's farked, don't need evidence then
