Cliff is back as Idols judge

29 January 2016 10:46 AM
Redi Tlhabi speaks to Gareth Cliff's lawyer Erick Mabuza about the outcomes of their lawsuit against M-Net.

Judge Caroline Nicholls has ruled that Gareth Cliff be reinstated as the Idols judge with immediate effect.

Judge Nicholls said a contract did exist between Cliff and M-Net and that it should be honoured.

Cliff was sacked by the channel following his comments on social media over the Penny Sparrow racial saga.

Cliff’s lawyer Erick Mabuza says this was a contractual dispute.

Listen to the full conversation on The Redi Tlhabi Show:

From the beginning we thought this was the case of unfair treatment on Mr Cliff

This is not just a victory for Mr Cliff, it is also victory for the contestants of Idols and everyone in South Africa…

Erick Mabuza, Gareth Cliff lawyer

M-Net is such a big company … the issue that the relationship has soured really doesn’t hold water
