"SowetanLive reported that the Southgate and Ridgeway supermarkets had been closed earlier this week following the incident."

So a single word has been elevated to the point where it has the power to do what usually takes a natural disaster of some sort.

Shoprite manager accused of using k-word faces disciplinary hearing

I think managers in places like this should record everything they say for the entire time they’re at work, (obviously as long as they aren’t actually the type to be swearing at staff members),

If it can be established the complainants fabricated the story, they can be dismissed. There have been cases like that before. Let's hope the panel approaches this objectively and hasn't already taken sides.

*Some* managers. Some would not want any recordings at all, might just incriminate them.

I did qualify with “as long as they aren’t actually the type to be swearing at staff members”.

Shoprite manager accused of racial slur cleared by lie detector test

A Shoprite regional manager who was under investigation after allegedly referring to black employees as lazy k*****s has been found not guilty. In a letter seen by TimesLIVE, Shoprite said the manager was cleared after she, alongside a branch manager, were subjected to polygraph tests, the results of which indicated “no deception”. Last month, workers at three supermarkets in Johannesburg, including Southgate and Ridgeway, halted work protesting against alleged abuse suffered under the manager.
