The barman, Bongani Zulu, told The Citizen the manager, known as Basil, fired him before assaulting him for joining a worker’s union. In the video, a man believed to be the manger is seen hitting Zulu with fists in the presence of customers at an ANAT restaurant yesterday.
Zulu said that while the manager was beating him he was saying: “I want to show you that I am a Greek. You South Africans are nothing.”
Zulu described the Basil as an abusive manager and that he always assaulted and threatened stuff members. Basil told The Citizen he did not want to comment on the matter.
“Speak to my attorney. I don’t want to talk about this,” he said.
A case of assault was opened at the Edenvale Police Station. Investigations are ongoing.
