In a business deal gone wrong, two businessmen have taken to Twitter and radio to battle out their grievances.
Prominent businessman, Mzwandile Thabethe who runs restaurants Kos'potong and Sophiatown Bar Lounge reported that he has been a victim of a cyber-bullying after a business associate started tweeting that they both have been running a successful business in human trafficking.
Lungile Radebe (@TherealLungsta), on the other hand, is the guy who tweeted to his 1, 176 followers that he and Thabethe were running a successful human trafficking business.
702's John Robbie spoke to these two businessmen to try and get to the crux of the issue and hopefully assist in resolving the dispute. Thabethe and Radebe both share their version of this sad business story.
