“I would like to correct something. I lost my case because I posted about an alleged victim and she did not come forward to verify the story.
“It is not the same as Amanda, Masechaba, and the other ladies who are the originators of their posts and stories. I feel it disingenuous to use my case to intimidate these women from telling their story.”
She then says that she was not ordered to pay R500 000 as stated by the Maarohanye’s. She says that she was ordered to pay R200 000 towards the legal fees of the complainants.
“My elders, I have been ordered by the court not to speak defamatory about my complainant, and as you correctly stated I lost.
“You also got all my costs wrong. I was ordered to pay their legal fees which came close to R200,000. I don’t know where you got the half a million from unless it was just to scare the other ladies.”
She ends the statement by urging the family not to use her name to “protect their son.”
