Speaking to IOL, the 947 DJ and radio presenter refuted these claims leveled against him, saying he is hurt that these allegations were made again. He told the publication that he does not know these women and has flatly denied raping these women. This is what he had to say:

“I am aware that assertions have been made about me on social media and I understand that this is often the price of being in the public eye. The fact that these claims are untrue and from an unknown source, does not make them less hurtful,” Fresh told IOL.

“I am deeply concerned that spurious allegations about Gender-Based Violence , especially as it is one of the most significant societal challenges in South Africa, undermine the gravity of legitimate incidents, and impact the urgency with which they are attended. Each time someone succumbs to the temptation of using GBV to further personal agendas, the cause to eradicate this scourge takes a step backwards.“

He then encouraged victims to pursue the relevant channels and lay charges against their abusers immediately. 

“Please, should you have a substantiated concern or be the victim of a genuine case of GBV, I urge you to immediately go to your local police station and lay a charge. Pursuing the matter through a legal and criminal process is the best way to ensure that you get the protection you need.”

947 commented on the matter and said even though they are monitoring the matter, they are waiting for formal and legal notifications from authorities to take further action.
