The new board of directors of Soweto TV has received legal advice to issue this statement.
The board of Soweto TV wishes to apologise unequivocally to Thabo Molefe aka TBO Touch for a defamatory statement purportedly issued in Soweto TV’s name in May 2021 in which Mr Molefe was called “corrupt” by the station.
The statement was false, unjustified, and defamatory of Mr Molefe and illegal as it was issued by an illegitimately constituted body which had no authority to do so.
Accordingly, the board retracts the defamatory statement. Soweto TV specifically records that it distances itself from the individuals who caused the letter which contained the defamatory statements to be published. There was no factual nor legal basis to do so. The board has been advised that the persons who issued the defamatory statement had no authority to act on behalf of Soweto TV.
Without prejudice, Mr Molefe kindly withdrawn the application to sue Soweto TV, for which we are grateful. We look forward to continuing our good working relationship with Mr Molefe.
