A woman has been arrested in Pretoria for public indecency after she staged a naked protest outside the Union Buildings.

Gugu Ncube, who is also the daughter of Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) deputy president Welshman Ncube, was demanding to address President Cyril Ramaphosa about the abuse she allegedly suffered while working at the University of South Africa (Unisa).

The Zimbabwean politician’s daughter said she was stripped of her dignity after she reported a sexual harassment case against her boss and was later dismissed immediately after that.

Ncube was escorted into a police van shortly after she protested half naked.

Sunnyside police spokesperson Captain Daniel Mavimbela said she’s been charged with public indecency.

“Members from Sunnyside police station were called to the Union Buildings after it was reported that there’s a woman who was allegedly standing naked near the building. On our arrival, we executed an arrest.”

Gugu claimed she was manhandled and fired after laying a complaint against her boss for making sexual advances on her.

Unisa has responded to the matter, saying it’s unfortunate that Ncube had to drag the name of the institution into disrepute after the matter was dealt with.

It said the staff member in question was suspended but was cleared after an investigation and returned to his post.
