The Western Cape Public Works has responded to the allegations of sexual assault in one of their facilities by one of the cleaners against a woman who was quarantined.

Spokesperson for the Western Cape Public Works Department, Jandre Bekker, says the suspect has been arrested and the woman is currently receiving much needed necessary care.

“The Department of Transport and Public Works received a report of an alleged sexual assault at its quarantine and isolation facility in Mossel Bay. The DTPW takes any such allegations very seriously and will be giving our full support to the investigation.”

“The suspect, an employee of the appointed cleaning company, has been taken into custody by the SAPS.  The alleged victim has been taken from the site by the Department of Health to a different location and is receiving the needed support,” says Bekker.
