Good news for 23-year-old Esethu Mcinjana: she got the job that she hoped for.
On Thursday GroundUp reported that Mcinjana had been searched and arrested on the Sea Point beachfront on 19 May, while waiting for an interview at a hotel in the neighbourhood.
She was held overnight at the Sea Point Police Station, accused of being in possession of “vehicle breaking implements” after the police officer who searched her bag found house keys with a broken gate remote control.
Mcinjana was released the following afternoon, after her mother made a statement describing where the remote control was from. But because of the arrest Mcinjana missed her job interview.
After the GroundUp report she was called by the hotel and given a chance to attend an interview on Monday. Her application was successful and she has been accepted for a paid learnership.
