'Its obvious that Grant Thornton doesn't care about public opinion'- Caller

Former Grant Thornton SA director, Nerisha Singh, revealed a trail of sexual harassment claims and alleged cover-ups by the company on The Eusebius McKaiser Show on Tuesday. Another victim also came forward to tell their story. Christine described what happened to her at the hands of the same alleged sexual predator Vernon Naidoo while working at Grant Thornton SA.

Eusebius McKaiser spoke to acting CEO Gillian Saunders about Singh's claims and Saunders emailed her and withdrew its latest offer to employ her again, stating that she was bringing the company's reputation into disrepute. The company said there is no longer a viable working relationship.

Callers weighed in on how they feel about the company, one caller said that is clear that Grant Thornton does not care about public opinion.

They were just there to cover their asses and I just want to say they need to be hit in the pocket.

Sarashne, Caller

She said she would appreciate it if all government departments that do business with Grant Thornton, boycott them.

Another caller, named Nozuko said she was shocked.

I was sitting there listening and then afterwards I went into my colleagues office and we were just dissecting this sick, sick culture that men have when they feel like they are entitled to.

Nozuko, Caller

She said there is a man where she works who has decided that she is the apple of his eye and he's entitled to feel the way he does, because he has chosen her.

This is what people don't understand is that it doesn't necessarily have to be what that poor girl experienced in Durban yesterday, its these subtle little things that creep into your mind making you feel like, am I dressing a certain way? Am I laughing too much? What did I do to warrant this behaviour?

Nozuko, Caller
