The African Municipal Workers Union claims that Black workers in Cape Town are being targeted out.

The City of Cape Town has come under fire from the South African Municipal Workers Union (Samwu) for allegedly singling out black and female law enforcement employees.

The union claims that the city fired over 100 law enforcement officers due to inadequate performance on capacity assessments.

According to the South African Municipal Workers Union, the cops were evaluated at one level but were trained at another.

Hlalanathi Gagayi, the regional secretary of the South African Municipal Workers Union, asserts that the city manager and council need to step in and reassign the impacted officials.

“The mayor should intervene because in capacity process on its own they are not meant to dismiss on the first occasion because it was the first fromer incapacity but they just dismissed the employer”, said the regional secretary of the South African Municipal Workers Union, Hlalanathi Gagayi.
