#MeToo: 'He called me a c**k teaser': Rosie Motene on Khalo Matabane harassment

Actress and businesswoman Rosie Motene has described an encounter with film maker Khalo Matabane in which she claims he sexually harassed her.

Speaking to Bongani Bingwa, Motene says her first contact with Matabane was years ago through LinkedIn and he was very friendly.

For many years I thought he was homosexual. So when he put his arm around me or touched me I didn't think of it in any way or that he was trying to be sexual.

A couple of years later the pair crossed paths at the Durban Film Festival.

We went to his room and we were sitting and watching the insert on the hotel desk. We ordered a cappuccino and the hotel staff was taking long and then you know when you get those chills; you get those feelings and I turned around and he was laying on the bed and he was like why don't you come lay next to me.

Motene says she ran into Matabane a couple of days later.

The first thing he said to me was, 'oh you're such a c**k teaser.

Motene says after that night she made sure she was never alone with him. She further says that when the allegations came out she felt it was her duty to come forward. She claims other women are still too scared to speak out.
