The Daily Maverick has reported on another twist in the saga of South Africa’s Tourism’s nearly R1 billion investment in Tottenham Hotspur, following the marketing agency’s defense of its decision. It said that interim CFO Johan van der Walt admitted to having ties to the agency named in original documents relating to the campaign. Eyewitness News reports that the agency, WWP Group, was reportedly being paid for facilitating the campaign. However, SA Tourism acting CEO Themba Khumalo addressed the media on Thursday and was adamant that “no agencies” were involved as middlemen in the deal.
