Garane turned to Mbete and Modise in a memorandum dated May 17, where he wrote that the essence of his original grievance was being moved from a position he was legally contracted to serve Parliament, without any due process in terms of the law, which he said was a gross violation of his right as an employee.
“Failure to conclude my grievance through a credible due process compromises my professional credibility extensively; and has the potential to affect my public management career going forward.
“It is with a sense of feeling prejudiced that I took the decision to write to you, honourable presiding officers, trusting that the step will help me receive basic workplace justice,” he said.
During a memorial service in Parliament, Garane’s brother Sithembiso revealed that his brother had left a dossier documenting a toxic working environment in parliament. He also revealed that his brother had left a letter for his wife, in which he referred to his death as “a protest suicide against gross unfairness” in parliament.
