Sports radio personality, Thabiso Mosia says he will not apologize to Mzwakhe Mbuli for the allegations he made on Twitter last week.

Thabiso publically accused Mzwakhe of being a funeral scammer, having scammed Mandoza’s family of hundreds of thousands of rands during Mandoza’s funeral preparations, and of making artists pay to be on the funeral programme.

Mzwakhe has reportedly sent a letter of demand to Thabiso, who is currently in UK.


According to, TshisaLive who claim to have seen the letter, Thabiso has seven days to apologize and retract his statements.

"There is little doubt your media comments had negative impact with a potential to limit his ability to earn a living due to your alleged slanderous and insensitive actions that seeks to tarnish his image and character. You have seven days (7 days) upon receipt of this correspondence to retract your comments. We are further instructed to request that you issue an unconditional written public apology to Mr Mbuli and his family," the publication quoted the letter.

Thabiso has also been in touch with TshisaLive, telling them that he has not received any letter of demand and that he has no intention of apologizing.

“I have been in the UK for the last few days but checked my email inbox both there (in the UK) and this morning. I have not received a letter from Mzwakhe or his lawyers. I have heard about this letter and also that Mzwakhe is taking me to court but I haven't received anything. I stand by everything I said. It was not hearsay. I was there and I saw it. I won't apologise to a crook," Thabiso said.
