Supersport to appoint an external counsel to review the on-air incident

The latest on the Supersport on-air incident involving former Springbok Ashwin Willemse, Nick Mallet and Naas Botha will be reviewed by an external counsel.

Supersport released a statement earlier today.

We have had discussions this week with all the parties in an effort to resolve the matter amicably and expeditiously.

Despite good progress initially, the matter has unfortunately not been resolved. We have therefore decided to instruct an independent Senior Counsel, Advocate Vincent Maleka SC, to chair a review of the incident which occurred and to make recommendations to our management.

Pending the outcome of the review, the three presenters involved will not appear on-air. None of the presenters have been suspended and they will continue to be remunerated in terms of their contracts.

Advocate Maleka SC has been tasked to make findings and recommendations by Monday 11 June 2018.
