[LISTEN] ‘If Fransman believes this is an unfair accusation, let him bring evidence’

CapeTalk's John Maytham speaks to Assistant Editor of the Daily Maverick, Marianne Thamm, who says a lot need to be explored in the case of sexual harassment against embattled ANC Western Cape leader Marius Fransman.

CAPE TOWN - A series of text messages came to light yesterday, in which African National Congress (ANC) Western Cape leader Marius Fransman displays flirtatious behaviour towards a woman who has come forward with claims of sexual harassment against him.

The WhatsApp messages were published in the Daily Maverick.

Assistant Editor of the Daily Maverick, Marianne Thamm, says there are witnesses who are prepared to testify on the matter, and people need to do their jobs properly.

"If Fransman believes this is an unfair accusation, let him bring evidence. Let's do this in an open court and have a fair trial."
