Labour minister Fackson Shamenda has been named as one of the officials at the labour ministry who are shielding Vincent Palan, the game stores manager who is facing numerous charges of sexual harassment.
Shamenda who is a personal friend to Palan and gets abnormal discounts and VIP treatment whenever he visits the shop is working in league with some people in the police service to frustrate the prosecution of Palan.
Yesterday, Palan chose not to appear in court while his sexual harassment docket has disappeared. Sources from DPP’s office have told the Watchdog that there are some interferences from ‘big people’ while game stores workers said Shamenda was the main culprit.
The workers said that their past efforts to report Palan to the labour ministry proved futile and that he continued to boast that he was well connected to him (Shamenda).
And another worker, Recco Shula has joined the list of complainants. Shula says Palan always used to admire his bums and on many occasions told her that he would wish to squeeze them. She says at one time he attempted to touch her but she refused and Palan made her work at game stores ‘hell on earth’ and only stayed because she was a widow with two children to look after. Because of her big bums, Palan nicknamed her ‘cargo’
