The letter of demand accuses Mohale, as well as the production house responsible for the special, of “intentionally and wrongfully” publishing and broadcasting “certain, untruthful, defamatory and untested statements” about Thami Dish (real name Thami Kotlolo).

His legal team then took objection to an inference made in the show that he was rooting for Somizi and Mohale’s relationship, calling it an allegation alongside the inference that Thami witnessed the physical abuse Mohale went through.

They further accused Mohale and the production team of making a calculated move to tarnish his reputation by mentioning him in the show and claimed that this was harming his personal and professional reputation as well as his ability to draw an income in future.

Thami was recently cast in a role on Netflix’s local production, Justice Served.

The legal letter then concludes by making a number of demands.

The first being that the parties addressed in the letter of demand “cease and desist from making and/or broadcasting any false, malicious and defamatory statements against Thami or sharing any such material.
