EqualEducationNews24 writes that Equal Education's (EE’s) sexual harassment woes have multiplied after its treasurer Doron Isaacs joined two other members who have been accused of sexual harassment and have resigned as a result.  

EE announced on Friday evening that Isaacs submitted a letter to its national council in which he resigned as treasurer of EE and as a member of the organisation.  Despite resigning amid allegations of sexual harassment, the organisation said that Isaacs has not accepted any wrongdoing and indicated that he was prepared to submit himself to an independent investigation.  The Mail & Guardian reported earlier on Friday that several women had spoken out about having been sexually harassed by Isaacs.  He joins former general secretary Tshepo Motsepe and former head of national organising Luyolo Mazwembe, who also resigned amid allegations of sexual harassment earlier this month.  The organisation's interim national coordinator Leanne Jansen-Thomas said that EE had acted swiftly to address every allegation that had been put before it.
