OldMutualCape Times reports that more people have come forward saying there is racist bullying at Old Mutual, following the newspaper’s recent article on the issue.  

Old Mutual has confirmed there is an investigation underway into African Infrastructure Investment Managers (AIIM), one of its subsidiaries.  Old Mutual said:  “While we are addressing the matter urgently, we do require the necessary time to conclude the investigation and review process properly, before providing any further comment.  Our grievance and escalation procedures ensure that no individual or whistle-blower is compromised in any manner.  The Cape Times has received e-mails subsequent to its original story, from former employees of the company complaining of racism.  "There are countless women who are getting physically sick, or have left the company already due to their treatment of black individuals, among other things,” one person said.  Another said she was not surprised by the allegations made against AIIM.
