Workers at the Urban Moyo restaurant, co-owned by Gugulethu Zuma-Ncube, claim some of them have not received their Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) benefits and those who did, received it “in dribs and drabs”.
Gugulethu Zuma-Ncube is daughter of Minister of Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma and former president Jacob Zuma.
The irate employees, who asked to remain anonymous, told of how they went without salaries since 27 March. This after the Sandton restaurant closed due to the lockdown.
But Zuma-Ncube’s business partner denied that there was anything untoward, saying the fault lay with government and that the business even made emergency payments to workers from their own pockets until the UIF came though.
The UIF Covid-19 Temporary Employer/Employee Relief Scheme (Ters) payments were provided by the government as distress relief to employees whose jobs were affected by the lockdown.
Zuma-Ncube declined to comment, saying she was not involved in the restaurant’s operation. But she confirmed that she is co-owner of the business.
