Chief Pharmacist Thuli assaulted me

I couldn't resist posting this. It must be interesting working in the government offices in Swaziland.

Thuli Sibiya, the Chief Pharmacist in the Ministry of Health, left some employees agape when she allegedly floored her subordinate with punches.

Sibiya is alleged to have reduced Busisiwe Shongwe, employed as a cleaner in the same ministry, to a punch bag on Tuesday at around 9am.

The unfortunate scenario unfolded inside the ministry’s storeroom.

Shongwe, in an interview yesterday, confirmed to have been physically abused allegedly by the pharmacist in full view of her colleagues and a ‘stranger’.
