Kaufi Awoonor, a former employee at Yoga Zone in Gardens, used social media to detail an ordeal she said she experienced from colleague William Lindeque. They both worked at the studio.
Awoonor said it was a hot day in December last year when Lindeque told her, “it’s really hot today, let’s pretend we’re at the plantation so you can fan me”.
Awoonor said that being from Ghana, a country that was destroyed by slavery, the comment was both disgusting and insensitive.
When Awoonor took it up with Lindeque and the owner of the studio, Fulvio Grandin, she was dismissed and made to feel like what was said wasn’t an issue.
