earningsSowetan reports a company that gives people in need of a place to stay has ironically left its employee stranded without accommodation far from home in Cape Town.  

Habitat for Humanity, whose vision is of a world where everyone has a decent place to live, allegedly kicked its finance consultant Dineo Saba out of a guesthouse booked for her after her apparent refusal to sign an employment contract that she disputed over the pay rate.  Speaking on Sunday, Naomi Saba, 50, from North West, said her misery began three days before when she had already arrived in Cape Town.  “I received the copy of my contract while at the guesthouse and realised that I was dissatisfied with the figures for the pay rate and accommodation arrangements. So, I confronted the CEO Dineo Molomo who later became arrogant and not willing to hear me out,” claimed Saba.  According to Saba, she had a verbal agreement with Molomo after she was selected and appointed as a finance consultant for the Cape Town office.  She worked for the company for over 12 years as a regional finance manager for the division in Pretoria.  Her agreed rate with the CEO was apparently a net salary of R27,000 after deductions.  Saba said she was kicked out of the guesthouse on Friday morning and was staying with an unknown woman whom she met at a bus stop in Cape Town.
