Sounds like some Middle East BS. They like to ''employ'' people from South-East Asia and Africa and then take their passports away and effectively enslave them.

Qatar's World Cup football stadiums have been built by many of these modern slaves.

“She made contact with me via someone in Rylands and said I must make an excuse like there was a sickness or death in the family so they could send her home because they were keeping her hostage."

If she was kept hostage? Why would they send her back home for a sickness or death?

What kind of security do they have? Did they chain her to the bed at night? Do they not sleep?

I suspect abuse and verbal abuse over a long period. Completely breaking down her character and making her feel worthless and maybe threatening taking her pension away or promising she will get paid but only if she is a good girl.

“Penalties and interests are payable if an employer is found to be flouting labour laws in respect of the national minimum wage,” she said.

“Additional penalties may apply if the employee was not registered for the Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF).”

Surely that's the least of these people's worries now they will be charged with kidnapping and assault???

Possibly she felt that way to start with like so many people in SA. Sad.

So, she had a choice than. And her IQ is? Either way, why is no one mentioning racism? Is the cruel employer not white or what? Does Malema and myBB ANC brigade know about all this abuse?
Sick minded employer if you ask me. If true, should rot in jail until Jesus comes.
