Bayford read the agreement in court on Tuesday on behalf of Nchindo and Matome who had complained to Regional Magistrate Lot Moroka that the published articles had a bearing on the pending court case.

Bayford told the court that the newspapers do not accept any wrongdoing or blame. He told the court that the two newspapers have endeavoured to set the rights and obligations of the accused and to uphold the integrity of the proceedings currently pending before court on their reportage.

However, Bayford conceded that the two newspapers will not

publish any matter tending to prejudice the outcome of the case or influence the courts' function in determining a dispute between the two parties.

Finally it was agreed that on compassionate grounds, the two newspapers' reportage should show a degree of sensitivity on the grief of the Nchindo family.

Moroka, in response to the settlement, congratulated both parties on the path they chose to take. He was pleased at "the matured approach to the matter" which the two parties chose, which also saved time and "prevented bloodbath disputes".
