Earlier today, notorious author Jackie Phamotse was involved in yet another Twitter spat that could see her find her way back into the defendant's seat about claims she made about someone else on social media.
Phamotse got into it with media practitioner, Lupi Ngcayisa, after he tweeted what looks like court documents from the case she lost against media mogul Basetsana Kumalo.
This after Ngcayisa commented on how she used the defence that she is a fiction writer to try dodge the charges that the Kumalo's had brought against her.
It is highly disturbing if not concerning that @JackiePhamotse has HURT people’s DIGNITY ZBY making claims to videos that don’t exist and hockey clubs that don’t exist only for her to turn around and claim she writes fiction ie she creates these LIES in her head.— @UncleLupi (@lupingcayisa) August 6, 2018
How are WE to tell what is real and what is fictional in @JackiePhamotse ‘s book when she has lied with such big https://t.co/mY69Vfi3oh are we to trust her personal story?Is it her personal story or is it her creative and malicious fiction?Jacky you owe society an apology.— @UncleLupi (@lupingcayisa) August 6, 2018
He then called for Exclusive Books, one of the main distributors of her latest work, to recall the book as she has damaged her credibility with the claims she made in her statement.
It would be responsible of @ExclusiveBooks to recall @JackiePhamotse ‘s book BARE.She misled society by passing on fiction as real.The court affidavit she submitted bears reference.Those who bought the books must be refunded— @UncleLupi (@lupingcayisa) August 6, 2018
All broadcast and media houses that helped @JackiePhamotse populate her lies through giving her airtime owe SOCIETY an apology.— @UncleLupi (@lupingcayisa) August 6, 2018
@JackiePhamotse would it be insensitive of us to assume the story about the Deputy/Minister is but just another fictitious story?Phela we can’t tell what’s real or not where you are concerned.— @UncleLupi (@lupingcayisa) August 6, 2018
Phamotse lost it and proceeded to insult and threaten Ngcayisa.
Publicist, Linda Moeketsi then joined the fray by reminding the author that she had also made false allegations about him in a tweet which she has since deleted.
He hinted that he would be consulting his lawyer to find out if he has grounds to take legal action against her.
I must consult my lawyer on what happens when a person defames you using fiction. https://t.co/p0m4ahXtzX— Linda Moeketsi (@LindaMoeketsi) August 6, 2018
Eish konje she said you got the vehicle from the Hockey Club!— Alex Stemela (@AlexStemela) August 6, 2018
Fear not @lupingcayisa, I have an army of lawyers waiting for any document that you’ve been thereatened with. Perhaps, while they’re around, we can also ask them why their client attached my name to an imaginary “hockey club”. She must bring everything she has. I AM READY!— Linda Moeketsi (@LindaMoeketsi) August 6, 2018
She also threatened to take legal action against Ngcayisa for what she calls "a smear campaign."
It is so unfortunate that we have come to this point however my name and brand needs to be protected. We will be taking legal action against @lupingcayisa for his recent smear campaign. You will definitely be hearing from my legal team.— Jackie Phamotse (@JackiePhamotse) August 6, 2018
