Willemse’s TV walkoff review report due today

Cape Town - Minister of Sport and Recreation, Tokozile Xasa, on Monday refrained from commenting after SuperSport published the outcome of the independent review into the sensational May 19 on-air incident involving Ashwin Willemse, Nick Mallett and Naas Botha.

Former Springbok players Nick Mallett and Naas Botha were the panellists when Willemse walked out.

SuperSport appointed Advocate Vincent Maleka SC, to review the allegations fully and objectively, after initial attempts to resolve the issue amicably and expeditiously by way of discussions with the presenters involved, did not resolve the issue. Hloni Mtimkulu is covering that story.

SuperSport chief executive officer Gideon Khobane said the report found that Mallett and Botha were not racist and they did not exhibit any unintended or subtle racism.

Maleka, however, conceded that "this report is impoverished by the absence of Mr Willemse's version of events".

"Ashwin has a contract with SuperSport‚" said Khobane.

Deputy sexually assaulted young girl, threatened to deport mom: cops
Given the nature of the crime, Sheriff Salazar urges undocumented immigrant victims to speak up regardless of their status. A Texas sheriff's deputy is arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting the child of an undocumented mother.

"I think he talks garbage, we irritate the hell out of each other and the working environment is just unpleasant and tense". "As a player‚ I've been called a quota for a long time and I've worked very hard to earn the respect I have now".

Multichoice CEO, Calvo Mawela and Supersport CEO, Gideon Khobane met with media on 19 June, after the scandal saw an independent inquiry set up to investigate the incident.

"I still see a place for Ashwin at SuperSport, and would like to understand his viewpoint as to why he decided not to participate in this process".

Khobane said he would engage with Botha and Mallett on Wednesday to find out when they would be available to return to work.

He went on to say he "can't work with people who undermine other people" and that he was "glad it happened on live TV so that people can see".

When contacted by TimesLIVE on Tuesday afternoon‚ Willemse declined to comment.
