This  is Fortune Moyo who suffered burns when his boss threw boiling water on him last month at a restaurant in Fourways.

Fortune Moyo says he is still perplexed why‚ on an ordinary day at work last month‚ his boss allegedly had a tantrum and poured boiling water on him for eating some leftover sauce from a oxtail stew intended for customers.

Moyo‚ 20‚reported for duty as usual at the Rodizio Brazilian Restaurant in Fourways on March 18‚ where he works as a cleaner. His boss had bought bread for the staff.

But after such a good act of kindness‚ Moyo said‚ his boss revealed his mood was sour. “He said that he is going to kill one person today‚” Moyo alleged. Moyo had been working at the restaurant since he was 16.

“My colleague had cooked oxtail in one pot and then poured the stew into another pot that would be used to serve the customers. But the one which had been used to cook the oxtail had some sauce left in it. One of the guys who work at the back came to fetch the pot to clean it‚” he said.

Moyo went to the pot in which the oxtail was cooked‚ mixed the sauce with some leftover spaghetti he had saved from the day before.

While he was doing this‚ his boss was observing him on the restaurant's cameras. The boss then came to them and asked why they were eating his oxtail and flipped.

Moyo suffered burns on his chest‚ arm‚ stomach and a small part of his face.
