Bono 'reeling and furious' over charity harassment allegations

News 12/03/2018

Bono has apologised following accusations against ONE, the organisation that he co-founded to help fight extreme poverty and disease.

The allegations included the toxic work environment as well as abuse and harassment by senior staff and tax evasion.

In his apology, Bono said that he and his board, including David Cameron and Facebook COO, Sheryl Sandberg are 'reeling' from the revlations.

ONE and the public were first informed of the problems in November last year when staff followed the #metoo movement that began in Hollywood. Seventeen staff came forward, some saying they were treated "worse than dogs."

“We are all deeply sorry. I hate bullying, can’t stand it," Bono said. "The poorest people in the poorest places being bullied by their circumstance is the reason we set up ONE. So to discover last November that there were serious and multiple allegations of bullying in our office in Johannesburg left me and the ONE board reeling and furious.”
