Katlego Mamabolo accused Malaika Mahlatsi of allegedly writing a PhD dissertation for Mzwandile Masina.
“Permit me to seize this opportunity and extend my regret and apologize to Ms Malaika Mahlatsi for the defamatory allegations which I levelled against her on the 10th of May 2020, the nature of these allegations implicate her in academic dishonesty, as they create the impression that she is doing the PHD of Cllr Mzwandile Masina, this is not true and I, therefore, retract all statements which speak to that,” reads a statement issued by Katlego Mamabolo via his Facebook.
Katlego Mamabolo said that he understands that these allegations have been very damaging to the integrity of the Executive Mayor of Ekurhuleni, Cllr Mzwandile Masina, an outstanding leader of society and academic, it is in that context that he offers his apology to him.
“I offer my apology to him and put it on record that through his various academic achievements, he has demonstrated a personal commitment to academic work.
Ms Malaika Mahlatsi and myself entered into a mutually consented relationship. I conduct a lot of business on the phone and had installed a call recording application since last year. I regret that this tool was used to betray the trust birthed from our relationship as lovers, it was on the basis of that relationship that she shared with me her frustrations, it was never with the intentions to put the City of Ekurhuleni into disrepute,” reads Katlego Mamabolo’s statement.
Katlego Mamabolo said that regardless of the many contradictions and imperfections between himself and Malaika Mahlatsi, she is the most authentic and honest person he knows.
Adding to his statement, Katlego Mamabolo said that he acknowledges that people will have their own opinions and views about the whole matter.
“As we put this matter to rest, I acknowledge that people will have their own opinions and views about the whole matter, people will easily throw insults, as what has been probably been the most traumatizing week of our lives has been entertainment to them, this is partly our fault, which I played a leading role in.
The truth is that we will never regard each other as enemies. This is a woman I have loved intensely and cared about, I have no doubt that she has always felt the same way. It is pointless to extend hate for people that will never be able to hate each other and yet cite them as reasons. Love & Light,” wrote Katlego Mamabolo.
