Metro FM manager hits back at Pearl Modiadie with R1m claim

 

Pearl Modiadie is in hot soup as Former Metro FM programmes Anthony Soglo is claiming R1 million from her following her sexual harassment suit against Metro FM.

This is coming after the star accused Soglo of passing inappropriate sexual overtones in an e-mail addressed to her in November 2019.

Pearl said she complained about the alleged sexual innuendos to management but nothing was done about it.

 

Metro FM is owned by the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC), so she filed a R3.5 million claim to hold the SABC vicariously liable for the incident.

The email in question was regarding booking arrangements.

The case is now raising eyebrows of many in Mzansi with tweeps questioning whether the sexual harassment claims were misguided and whether Pearl was simply out to get her former colleague.

According to reports, Soglo is now claiming R1 million from Pearl.

The R1 million serves as a counter claim for loss of income and reputational damage.

Soglo claims he apologized once he realised his remarks offended the radio personality.

For this reason he feels the issue should not have been taken to court.
