Update on Thembekile Molaudzi: wrongfully-convicted man tells his story to the media

Carolyn and Thembekile

Article that was published in Pretoria News in June 30.

We are sure you’ve seen or heard at least one of the many tweets, Facebook posts, radio interviews or articles that have resulted from our coverage of the story of Thembekile Molaudzi: a man recently freed after 11 years’ imprisonment, for a crime he did not commit.

Thembekile and Carolyn Raphaely, our journalist who has investigated and followed Thembekile’s case for more than 3 years, have been on a media whirlwind in the last ten days. We’ve collated most of the output here, in case you’ve missed any.

We particularly encourage you to click on the links to one of the radio podcasts as they are all in-depth interviews, which give you a chance to hear Thembekile tell his own story:
