Thodi: Accused

In an open letter to newly appointed Chairperson of MRA Board of directors Evelyn Mwapasa which Nyasa Times has obtained, some concerned women workers at MRA accuse Thodi of abusing women using his position and political connections.

“Mr Thodi is a womanizer and this is not news, it was so even before he came to MRA and since he came here at MRA last year, he already is going out with three women,” reads part of the letter which has been copied to MRA board members, Dr Davis Lanjesi, Mr Pius Mulipa, Secretary for Trade, Minister of Gender Patricia Kaliati, the Commissioner General of MRA, Deputy Commissioner General of MRA and Director of Human Resources of MRA.

“…Some women have complained about him giving them pressure to exchange sex with favours. What makes it worse is that he wants to have affairs with several women within MRA which brings complications and women are fighting for him,” reads part of the letter.

“…Our concern, Madam, is that some of us who are not interested in office romances but come here to work only, he is now making advances at us and threatening us..is this fair? Now it is being said that MRA is for bitches, that women sleep with their bosses to gain favours. MRA has never been a place like this,” reads part of the letter.

“Also Madam, MRA has a good policy of preventing HIV/AIDS at work. What Mr Thodi is doing is spreading the disease in this organization. Madam this is not speculation. A confidential letter came to administration but was intercepted which indicated his status for pension purposes. A woman scanned and circulated the letter. The company has a responsibility to protect its vulnerable female employees from catching the deadly disease,” adds the letter.

The concerned women said they have their ‘last hope’ in Mwapasa to sort out the problem, saying this is not the first time they complained as they have written before to the Deputy Commissioner General Roza Mbilizi and copied to the previous chairman of MRA board Thom Mpinganjira but nothing came up.

“As a fellow woman, hear the cry of your gender. We will be disappointed if you also remain quite,” signed off the concerned women.
