JUBA — Police authorities in South Sudan’s capital Juba have arrested the manager of Kenyan Commercial Bank (KCB), Roba Waqo, after sexual harassment claims by one of his former employees.
South Sudan National Police Service spokesman Major-General Daniel Justin said the police sent officers to go and arrest the Kenyan banker who however turned in to the police on his own.
“He was not arrested yesterday, but he came today by himself to the police station, and he is currently in custody under investigation,” Eye Radio quotes Gen. Justin as saying.
General Justin said that investigation into the alleged misconduct of the bank boss was ongoing, barely a month after a long-time employee of the bank resigned amid claims she had endured sexual harassment from the manager.
Bahijah Beatrice who was Information Technology manager at the KCB said she resigned on 25th May 2022 and narrated her experience in a resignation letter seen by Eye Radio.
“He started with his advances towards me, giving me weird compliments and all that, it happened severally to extent that I had to warn him,” she said.
“He (Waqo) has been frustrating my life and threatening me and harassing me at every single opportunity he gets,” she added.
