Willemse walk-out report expected at 3pm

MultiChoice CEO Calvo Mawela and Super Sport CEO Gideon Khobane address the media on 19 June 2018

Nick Mallett told SuperSport management that he did not want to work with Ashwin Willemse long before the latter walked out during a live TV broadcast.

However, he declined to take part in the inquiry.

In the letter, Willemse's attorneys maintained "that the May 19 incident was rooted in racism" and that Willemse informed the "CEOs on his submission to that effect".

SuperSport chief executive officer Gideon Khobane said the report found that Mallett and Botha were not racist and they did not exhibit any unintended or subtle racism.

"What comes out very clear is that Mr Willemse said he could not participate because he was not sure if the forum was the right one for evaluating the issues he wanted to ventilate. He is aggrieved by what happened on May 19, and considers racism to have inspired the conduct of his colleagues".

The Greek side should also ensure that its northern neighbours did not copy strong Greek brands linked to Macedonia. Meanwhile, the country's president, Gjorge Ivanov, said he will not sign the accord.

While Naas Botha and Nick Mallett, who were accused of "patronising" remarks during the broadcast that led to the drama, will be seen on television screens again in near future, Willemse's future remains uncertain.

SuperSport appointed Advocate Vincent Maleka SC, to review the allegations fully and objectively, after initial attempts to resolve the issue amicably and expeditiously by way of discussions with the presenters involved, did not resolve the issue.

MultiChoice CEO Calvo Mawela and his SuperSport counterpart Gideon Khobane address the media in Randburg on Tuesday.

According to a letter sent to Maleka by his lawyers, Willemse was adamant that "racism was the cause of the incident and the narrative perpetuated by SuperSport that there was no racism reinforces his view and infringed his human rights and dignity".

Khobane says the investigation concluded that there was no naked racism from both Mallet and Botha towards Willemse.
