The premier of Limpopo province, Stan Mathabatha, has admitted that it is indeed him speaking a viral love recording.

As Briefly.co.za reported earlier, Mathabatha is heard in the voice recording apparently professing his love for Vhembe District Municipality Mayor Florence Radzilani.

SowetanLIVE reports that Mathabatha, who is also Limpopo's ANC provincial chairperson, made the admission in a court attempt to stop City Press and Sunday World from publishing the story.

However, the North Gauteng high court dismissed his urgent application with costs over the weekend.

According to reports, Mathabatha's office had earlier cast doubt on the authenticity of the recording. In his court affidavit, however, he confessed:

[Radzilani] has tricked [me] into a telephonic communication with her wherein I expressed my love attraction and feelings for her.

Radzilani was elected Mathabatha's deputy in the recent ANC provincial elective conference. She has been implicated in the VBS Mutual Bank scandal.

She is alleged to have received R300,000 from the bank following a R300million deposit into VBS by her municipality. She denied wrongdoing in an interview with eNCA.

In an answering affidavit, Radzilani confirmed that she recorded the conversation with Mathabatha upon advice from her husband.
