OakbayNews24 reports that the Gupta-owned Oakbay Investments holding company has instituted disciplinary action against its employees who were critical of a letter in which management pleaded with the banks to reopen its accounts.  

The company has apparently also taken action against those employees who chased ANC Youth League president Collen Maine from their offices.  Employees who spoke on condition of anonymity said more than 15 of their colleagues received letters from Oakbay stating it would start disciplinary hearings against them on Thursday.  They said cases of intimidation had been opened against those who questioned The News Age online manager Phuti Mosomane, who signed the letter to the banks.  The charges, which News24 has seen, range from harassment of a fellow employee, Mosomane, to making defamatory remarks against Maine on national television.  By Tuesday morning, Oakbay had not responded to a request for comment.
