Equal Education released a statement last night confirming that Isaacs submitted a letter to the National Council, in which he resigned as treasurer and as a member of the organisation.
“He has not accepted any wrongdoing at this stage. He has indicated that he is prepared to submit himself to an independent investigation,” the statement read.
The Mail and Guardian reported yesterday that Isaacs had repeatedly been accused of sexual harassment by multiple women - including the organisation’s staffers - over the past decade, and that management within Equal Education, including Achmat, had covered this up.
In a response on Facebook on Friday, Achmat denied the claims and said he was willing to co-operate with any inquiry into such conduct.
