Sunday Sun unreservedly apologises to both Dini Nondumo and his wife, Karabo, for publishing damaging allegations pertaining to their purported dire financial situation, which unnecessarily have caused them reputational and other harm.
In the article headlined “DINI STRUGGLES WITH RENT CASH”, published on 1 October 2017, we reported the allegation that Dini was R8 000 in arrears for the apartment he’d allegedly been living in for five years with his wife, the last time rent was paid being in June.
The story also stated that the actor’s landlord threatened to boot them out, that his insurance business had lost a lot of clients over the past two years, and that his acting career had taken a knock since he left Generations.
Sunday Sun retracts all of these allegations – which Dini has denied – and reiterates the comment provided by him that neither he nor his wife has ever rented a property in Bryanston, and that they are currently homeowners.
We have been informed that:
• Dini has been a full-time senior executive employee of the Land Bank Insurance Company SOC Limited for the past two years. He voluntarily left the entertainment industry over 13 years ago; and
• Karabo is a chartered accountant who holds several independent non-executive directorships of JSE listed entities; she is involved in an advisory capacity in private equity funds as well as a trustee of several trusts whose beneficiaries are communities and special interest groups.
Sunday Sun apologises for any damage that this reportage could have caused the couple, including possible harm to their integrity and credibility.
