SuperSport has resolved the main issues raised by several rugby presenters in a letter sent to management.
At least four black SuperSport presenters – Owen Nkumanwe, Xola Ntshinga, Kaunda Ntunja and Gcobani Bobo – had reportedly accused management of racism in a letter to the company.
However, it has since been claimed that the letter was blown out of proportion and the problem turned into a racial issue.
In a statement, SuperSport CEO Gideon Khobane confirmed the matter was resolved.
‘We received the attorney’s letter some time ago but agreed with the presenters to investigate the matter and resolve the issues between ourselves,’ Khobane said.
‘All of the issues raised by the presenters have been resolved and we look forward to continuing to work together to create a great working environment for the SuperSport team. All of those commentators and presenters confirm that racism has not played any role in regard to the concerns raised and resolved.’
Speaking on behalf of his colleagues, Nkumane said: ‘We are happy with the way the whole process has been conducted by SuperSport. We have achieved our goals as a collective of a conducive working environment at SuperSport.’
