BBC journalist, Kiki Mordi who yesterday shook the African continent with her ‘Sex for Grade’ expose has revealed that her life has been threatened by some unscrupulous persons.
Her undercover investigation into sexual harassment in West universities, particularly Ghana and Nigeria has since yesterday become the talk on social media and most media houses in Africa.
The video released unmasked university lecturers who offer to help vulnerable female students in exchange for sekz.
In a chat with SaharaReporters, the bold journalist said although some forms of threats have been issued against her, she’s not bothered because her security won’t be compromised by her employers.
Kiki Mordi also reveals that the main objective is to get justice for these vulnerable students who have been suffering for so long without any respite.
“I have received subtle threats since this work was completed but I am not bothered because the BBC takes the security of employees seriously.
Before embarking on this project, the team prayed a lot and also sang because it helped to calm the nerves. But I had to go through the training I received over and over again because I wanted to get it right.
The biggest goal of this work was to be louder than the aggressor because sexual harassment is very loud. I wanted it to be silenced.
I am happy that a lot is changing already since the documentary was released and I can confirm to you that one of the lecturers at the University of Lagos caught sexually harassing a prospective student has been dismissed by the institution.
I believe it doesn’t stop there until there is a conviction. We have to break that culture of impunity,” she said.
