D-Day for Gareth and M-Net

By admin
29 January 2016

The High Court in Johannesburg will decide on Friday whether controversial media personality Gareth Cliff can return to his job as a judge on Idols.

'People really don’t understand free speech at all'

M-Net removed Gareth from the show following a backlash on Twitter after he commented on a Facebook post by KwaZulu-Natal realtor Penny Sparrow in which she called black beachgoers monkeys.

Gareth tweeted, "People really don’t understand free speech at all".

Gareth's lawyer Dali Mpofu and M-Net's legal representative Wim Trengove presented arguments in the high court on Tuesday.

Gareth wanted his job back and R25 million for defamation and breach of contract.

Auditions for Idols 2016 will begin at The Playhouse in Durban on Saturday.
