    Engen

    I've received this e-mail today. Can any one confirm whether this is true?

    Another company has made the same Mistake as Woolworths.

    ENGEN Head office has just announced that in future no ENGEN Garage will be sold to any White person.

    The ENGEN Board will not allow any ENGEN garages to be managed by any White persons, as "they don't need Whites" according to their spokesperson.

    When you next fill up your car use any other garage and not a ENGEN garage.

    If they don't need us, they don't need our support either!!!

    Hoax BBM circulating

    There has been a hoax BBM message circulating, accusing ENGEN of racial misconduct.

    18 October 2012 | Tamika Sewnarain

    BROADCAST messages started circulating on Blackberries earlier this week, claiming "ENGEN Head office has just announced that in future no ENGEN Garage will be sold to any White person."

    The message continued: "The ENGEN Board will not allow any ENGEN garages to be managed by any White persons, as they don't need Whites. When you next fill up your car use any other garage and not a ENGEN garage. If they don't need us, they don't need our support either!!! If you feel as strongly about this as I do, please forward this mail to your friends!"

    At the end of the broadcast message, a signature remained, the details of which directed the reader to a Bob Bartholomew of Brantam Financial Services.

    When the company was called, the recepionist confirmed the message was a hoax and that Brantam Financial Services had nothing to do with the message.

    "Someone has obviously copied the signature of an email and attached it to the BC message. We have no idea what is going on. We are in no way linked to this," she said.

    Engen Head Office was contacted for comment: "The allegations are not true. Engen supports Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment and fair representation. We accept applications from all races and selection is made on the basis of compliance with our criteria and the strength of the business case," said Bulelwa Payi, Communications Executive at Engen Petroleum Limited.

    People don't realise how much harm they can cause with hoaxes such as these.

    Thank you for the update Mike.

    You're welcome Blurock.

    I take it you noticed the fancy language in the last sentence

    We accept applications from all races and selection is made on the basis of compliance with our criteria and the strength of the business case," said Bulelwa Payi, Communications Executive at Engen Petroleum Limited.
    All applications accepted ... but selections ... (well that's another thing).

    As long as the selection process is transparent, I don't mind. Its blatant racism that gets my back up.

    For those who cant read upside down.
    It is not the harm such hoaxes can cause, what concerns me is how many people want this thing to be true, because deep down there is a general feeling of hurt being caused by black on white racism and people want the proof to show it. These hoaxes are showing a much deeper problem of the society.
