susanshabangu thumb medium80 113eNA reports that Minister of Women in the Presidency, Susan Shabangu, said on Wednesday about her cabinet colleague’s sexual overtures to a junior government employee that it was unacceptable for leaders in SA to make remarks that undermined women.  

During a media briefing ahead of her budget vote, Shabangu was asked about Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation Minister Jeff Radebe’s explicit text messages to a 29-year-old government communications photographer and the example it set.  Shabangu commented:  “The issue of leaders who make sexual overtures, it’s unacceptable…  There’s no way we can allow leaders who continue to undermine women.  This is a matter that needs to be looked at within the relevant structures…”  Radebe admitted to the text messages on Monday and apologised.
