The story was first reported by Sunday World then Pearl breathed a huge sigh of relief saying she had been scared for far too long. She said the incident happened more than once.

“More than once, reference was made about my body shape and how ‘sexy it is’. Uncomfortable sexual innuendos were thrown around during conversations, even in the presence of my now former colleagues.”

“I had copied the then station manager in the e-mail and there was never a response from her. It was never addressed,” she said

In a statement issued on Twitter, the SABC had this to say, "The SABC notes with concern media articles about the alleged sexual harassment case at Metro FM and the Tweet by Ms. Pearl Modiadie.

"The SABC views sexual harassment in a serious light and will use its internal policies and procedures to deal with this matter. The SABC encourages any employees subjected to sexual harassment to use the Corporation’s specific internal channels to report such cases," the statement reads.
