Bitou mayor denies sex-for-job accusation
Memory Booysen has dismissed reports he sent inappropriate cellphone messages to a job-seeker.
CAPE TOWN - Bitou Mayor Memory Booysen, who is at the helm of the DA/Cope-run council, has denied having sexually explicit cellphone chats with a woman seeking employment at the local municipality.
He has dismissed reports he sent inappropriate messages to the job-seeker and says an investigation has been launched.
Booysen adds the woman is actually his cousin and he believes the incident is politically motivated.
"Before this thing was ran in the media I was approached by two members of the ANC and I was also then phoned by a lawyer. They then said that we've got this evidence and the lawyer wanted to make it an out-of-court settlement, which I refused."
