Isaac Kgosi speaks out


“I have, in the last several weeks, watched with utter horror how the media has, day after day, and week after week, accused me of great crimes, tried me of those crimes, convicted me of those crimes, and lynched my character in the public square.

I now have been advised, in view of the fact that the publication of the accusations in the media continues and has reached new levels of hysteria, to offer my version to the degree that I am lawfully permitted to do. I have also been advised that my continued silence might be construed as an affirmation of my purported guilt.
