John describes a concocted story that has been doing the rounds about the Willemse, Mallet, Botha saga.
He relates the 'story' he has read which says the following: 'My boet bumped into Mallet at a restaurant yesterday. Mallet told him that Willemse didn't even watch the game he was meant to report on. He pitched up to the studio just before the end and then when mallet and Botha asked him for his comments he turned it into them putting him on the spot and trying to make him look like a fool.'
This 'story' is an attempt to imply that the incident had nothing to do with race but rather incompetence, says John.
John says while he was 99.9% sure that this was untrue, he checked with all involved, and Ashwin Willemse did indeed watch the game.
You take an anonymous piece of OBVIOUSLY fake news and use that as evidence to spew your objectionable, stupid racist view - and you think you're being clever.— John Maytham
