Briefly News reported that Moja Love released an official statement distancing themselves from the recent utterings of Molemo “Jub Jub” Maarohanye.

The Uyajola 9/9 host shared a video expressing some strong views about the ongoing protests in the country.

In a statement released by the TV channel to Briefly News, the views expressed by him are not in line with their own.

“The views expressed on the videos or any of his platforms are his personal views and do not reflect the company values and views of the channels in any way.”

The statement continued:

“The socio-economic situation of the country is a stark reality we emphathise with, but we do not condone violence in addressing the matter. We call on South Africans to stand together to denounce the looting, violence and lawlessness that has gripped the country.”
