The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviews Mr Tekkie cofounder Bernard Mostert.

Pepkor is going to keep on coming, and we’re going to keep on standing our ground.

Bernard Mostert, Mr Tekkie

Steinhoff-controlled Pepkor has failed in its attempt to restrain five of Mr Tekkie’s senior executives – including Tekkie Town founder Braam van Huyssteen - from any involvement in retail.

Steinhoff, through Pepkor, came to the court wanting to bully a group of individuals into submission. They failed comprehensively.

Bernard Mostert, Mr Tekkie

Three Mr Tekkie stores started trading in October, and the plan is to open an additional 12 stores later this month.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Mr Tekkie cofounder Bernard Mostert.

Mostert, along with Van Huyssteen and others, founded Mr Tekkie after the loss of their interest in Tekkie Town due to the collapse of Steinhoff.

Listen to the interview in the audio below (and/or scroll down for more quotes from it).

Today is a very, very good day for us.

Bernard Mostert, Mr Tekkie

Pepkor tried to flatten us with litigation...

Bernard Mostert, Mr Tekkie

I don’t know if there is anything in any of our stores that we are precluded from selling…

Bernard Mostert, Mr Tekkie

There are about 11 legal cases… We’re just trying to keep our heads above water… We enjoy being busy…

Bernard Mostert, Mr Tekkie
