CityPress - - News - – Johan Ey­bers, Rap­port

Af­ter he was outed by MiWay as the au­thor of a fake, racist email, Mondli Mad­lala (32) fears he may lose his car sales­man job and bat­tle to find another.

Mad­lala, who also works as DJ Ba­baloo, said his strife be­gan when a car he owned, which was used as an Uber ve­hi­cle, was in­volved in an ac­ci­dent. MiWay wouldn’t pay his claim and the loss of in­come meant he had to move out of his Dur­ban apart­ment and into a back yard flat.

“I’m still panic-stricken... I learnt a very ex­pen­sive les­son,” he said.

MiWay CEO René Otto de­cided not to lay charges.

“It was clear to me that Mad­lala is not a so­cial-me­dia ter­ror­ist, but an im­pul­sive young man who made a massive er­ror of judge­ment,” he said.

“I felt his apol­ogy was gen­uine and I im­me­di­ately ac­cepted it. The world can’t func­tion with­out for­give­ness.

“For­give­ness opens the door for hope and rec­on­cil­i­a­tion,” he said.
