“It is further clear through the instruction of our client that previously, claims have been introduced in the effect of false rumours declaring an unknown illness. It’s a cause of concern wherein such rumours have caused prejudice and harm to the character, personality, and psychological well-being of Mr. Thanyane,” reads Jobe London’s statement.

Henceforth, clarity and discretion shall be applied before any false commentary is expressed, it is, therefore, our client’s intention to ensue legal action in the future should any individual or entity lodge defamatory comments.”

“As under the auspices of our law defamation may result in either criminal or civil action. Azania Legal Advisory and Consultancy will be in continuous consultation and communication with Mr. Thabang Thanyane, professionally known as Jobe London to ensure continuous legal protection with the assistance and instruction to Ditabe and Wagner Attorneys partnering with Azania Legal Advisory and Consultancy,” reads the rest of the statement.
