'We know nothing about that letter' says anonymous Oakbay employee

Frustrated anonymous caller, who says she is an employee at Oakbay Investments says she doesn't know anything about the open letter written to four South African banks.

In an open letter, Oakbay employees plead to Absa, FNB, Nedbank and Standard Bank to restore relations with the company saying their livelihoods are at stake.

Anonymous told Afternoon Drive's Xolani Gwala that they would not defend people who oppress them daily.

Scroll down for quotes from the conversation.

We completely disagree with what has been said there because the person who wrote this did not even consult with employees.

Anonymous Oakbay Investments employee

We completely do not agree with this, especially because as employees here we suffer a lot of injustices. And quite frankly, it would be stupid to now support the people who oppress us on a daily basis.

Anonymous Oakbay Investments employee

It seems as if we are now condoning the alleged corruption that has been reported. Yes we are worried that we will have no jobs at some point but we will not protect people who oppress us.

On the other hand, anonymous employee maintains her position that as workers they were never told about the letter.
