The topic of sexual harassment on set has been on everyone’s lips because of Lithapo actress Lorraine Moropa who opened up about being sexually harassed on set by a senior male actor and now it looks like Dumisani Mbebe is also dragged in on the accusations.
Actor Dumisani has been in the forefront of the sexual harassment war fighting for women’s rights in the industry, and one would think that the actor has never sexually harassed anyone, but according to a DM he recently received, it says otherwise.
“Dumisani must shut up because I know he harassed my friend on set many years ago. She would sit in her car to avoid him. She was only on set when they started shooting. She reported him to the producer. They swept it under the rug. This was more than 10 years ago,” read the DM.
Well, Dumisani responded very calmly and stated that at that particular time he didn’t know it was sexual harassment and now that he knows he won’t do it again, yoh..
“I’m not going to say I did not because chances are I did not know then that it was sexual harassment. That said, now that I know better, I shall be even more vocal against it!” tweeted Dumisani.
Dumisani said that it was a pity that the producers, he was reported to sweep the matter under the rug as they deprived him of an opportunity to learn about sexual harassment early on in his career.
