UPDATE-Sex-For-Grades: I Have Received Threats: BBC Journalist, Kiki Mordi

Kiki Mordi, the BBC journalist who went undercover with the aim of exposing university lecturers guilty of sex for grades
, is now being threatened by people angry about the piece which went viral a few hours ago.

Kiki, who said she was herself a victim of sexual harassment at the university and didn’t graduate, said on Monday that the project was inspired by her personal story.

In a recent interview with Sahara Reporters, she shares some aftermath of being and championing the project.

She told Sahara Reporters: “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 trainings I received over and over again because I wanted to get it right. 

The bulk of the ritual I performed were reading, research and preparation.

“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.”
