Bell Pottinger: Mzansi Wants Explanation Not Apology

Public relations firm Bell Pottinger has apologised for the work they have done with the Gupta family and Oakbay Capital.

But angry people of Mzansi have told BellPottinger to keep their apology. They say the firm should be prosecuted for "inciting racial tension with the intention of causing civil war in South Africa."

Bell Pottinger is accused of sowing racial divisions in South Africa during their work for Gupta companies, Gupta family and President Jacob Zuma's son Duduzane.

When the firm left Oakbay three months ago, it said it felt "insulted" by allegations that they were causing racial tensions in Mzansi.

Now its CEO James Henderson claimed that at various points throughout the tenure of the Oakbay account, senior management have been misled about what has been done.

"For it to be done in South Africa, a country which has become an international beacon of hope for its progress towards racial reconciliation, is a matter of profound regret and in no way reflects the values of Bell Pottinger."

Henderson said as soon as the firm was made aware that they had been misled, it acted immediately by firing and suspending staff.

"We wish to issue a full, unequivocal and absolute apology to anyone impacted. These activities should never have been undertaken. We are deeply sorry that this happened."

Now Mzansi people took to twitter to tell Bell Pottinger what they think of them. - Daily Sun
