“After the fight, I asked her to go to the police and get me arrested for what I had done to her. But she said she had forgiven me, basically, we forgave each other and moved on with our lives. This is something that I’m not proud of and still haunts me even today, and I wish I could have handled the situation differently.
“It hurts me that these people are now using my past to undermine my efforts to fight gender-based violence in this country. I challenge any woman to come out now and say I had abused her since then,” the publication quoted him.
Sunday Sun also revealed that both Tebogo, JJ, and Sello’s EX have denied bad-mouthing him.
“He is a crook. He is just looking for attention, I’m not the one who wants to undermine his reputation, he is the one who tattered it. Why should we allow him to be an ambassador with such a reputation?” the paper quoted JJ Tabane.
Tebogo was also quoted saying: “I swear I had nothing negative to say about him because to me he was a formidable force in the organisation and I hold him in high regards.”
