CAPE TOWN – Mr Tekkie and its founders regret to yet again have to issue a press release that addresses false claims by Pepkor.
The Steinhoff controlled company claims that they have delivered a list of Tekkie Town footwear that Mr Tekkie is prohibited from stocking.
This is not true.
“The list received by our legal team this morning is overly broad and opportunistic. It is not the Annexure A that is referred to in the court order as there has never been one, and in any event, its contents are in stark contrast to Judge Baartman’s ruling,” said Bernard Mostert, who along with Braam van Huyssteen and four others are respondents in the case.
In her ruling Judge Baartman stated: “The effective date is 1 October 2016. I have considered that prior to that date, the respondents have employed entrepreneurial skill, talent and have achieved much success. They provide much needed employment. They should not be hampered in their economic activity beyond the effective date.
