Zunaid Moti, owner of the Moti Group, has said that Amabhungane has been spreading false information about him and the company.

 

Amabhungane currently possesses the documents that Clinton van Niekerk, a former employee, allegedly stole from the company.

“Moti Group and myself have been the target of a smear campaign by amaBhungane journalists, who have published false, one-sided narratives, and shared private information like banking details as if this is somehow in the public’s interest” said Zunaid Moti.

The Moti Group recently obtained an interim interdict prohibiting amaBhungane from publishing any articles based on the leaked internal documents .

Moti Group CEO Dondo Mogajane said the court application was necessitated by the fact that amaBhungane have steadfastly refused to provide the Moti Group the right to view the documents that they are basing their articles on.

“The Group has reason to believe that Clinton Van Niekerk significantly altered the documents he provided to amaBhungane, and could not answer its journalists’ questions fully without understanding the exact alterations that had been made. Again, these reasonable requests have been repeatedly denied.”

“However, we stand by our right to retrieve our property and not be harassed by the media. The South African Constitution offers all members of society protection against theft and crime, and amaBhungane’s rights are not more important than any other citizen’s.”
