Sheriff may attach Zola's items - report

Johannesburg - Household items of kwaito star and television personality Bonginkosi "Zola 7" Dlamini might be attached and auctioned after he failed to pay his former domestic worker for unfair dismissal, the Sunday World reported.

Edith Raditlhalo worked for Zola for a month but received no pay and was fired, the newspaper reported.

She won her case against the singer at the Council for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) in August 2009. This was after Zola ignored the CCMA's summons to attend the hearing.

He was ordered to pay Raditlhalo R6 000 as compensation for unfair dismissal. The amount was equivalent to a two-month salary.

Raditlhalo said Zola employed her as a general worker in 2009. Zola told the newspaper he fired Raditlhalo because she was not hired by him, but by his personal assistant.

"I didn't know that Raditlhalo took the matter to the CCMA because I didn't receive anything from them," he was quoted as saying.

    Yeah right! Wonder what Zola's reaction would be if he was on the receiving end of an unfair dismissal!

    And that is the reason why I will not employ a domestic worker. They do as they like and if you chastise them, then they want to sue you. Rather do without and let them be without

      This lady only wanted her pay for work she has done - where did you read she did what she liked? If you keep your end of the bargain, there is no need for the CCMA or newspaper reports like this ...

    CCMA are a bunch of bogus upstarts. They falsify documents, post summonses to incorrect addresses with the deliberate purpose of not having the defendant arrive to defend his case. Make separate cases for the same offence. Happened to me, so why not him?

    R3000 salary per month? What was she doing? Booking tours and interviews?
