Joint statement: Vodacom and EFF

Tuesday, 4 December 2018

Vodacom and EFF leadership met yesterday to discuss comments and slides presented at a recent Vodacom event by Corruption Watch chairperson, Mavuso Msimang, and the subsequent unrest.

In the meeting, the parties discussed the matter in detail and have resolved the issue. Vodacom acknowledged that it is politically neutral and it doesn't influence party political positions in any way. Vodacom and EFF appreciate that the matter could have been handled differently to avoid the misunderstanding that occurred.

Vodacom and EFF encourage the right of freedom of speech and the free circulation of ideas. The parties also committed to engage on policy issues of mutual interest and consider the matter to be closed.
