Cape Town – The office of ANC Chief Whip Jackson Mthembu announced on Thursday that it will be taking SABC group executive of corporate affairs Hlaudi Motsoeneng to court over “malicious and defamatory allegations” made a few weeks ago.

The charges concern statements Motsoeneng made during a New Age business briefing on October 27 in which he said that Mthembu had attempted to “capture” him.  

The Chief Whip’s legal representatives sent a letter to Motsoeneng demanding R1m in damages and an immediate public apology and retraction for his defamatory claims.
