It says something about the credibility of your newspaper when you can publish something on the South African ambassador who represents the South African government. People in the US Administration also don't think it’s something very favorable and have severely questioned your judgment.

[South African Embassy Disapproves Of Article]

We notice with great dismay the article that you published on the front page of your online newspaper regarding the ambassador.

While recognizing press freedom and your waiver that you don't take responsibility for what's published we would really like to express our regret that you have chosen to publish an article from by Mr. Kennedy Khabo who is a man of great disrepute.

We are not going to engage in any mud slinging but suffice to say that Mr. Kennedy Khabo does not come with a clear slate--clean reputation. He is very much an individual who is not held in high regard and as I said it says something about the credibility of your newspaper when you can publish something on the South African ambassador who represents the South African government.

People in the US Administration also don't think it’s something very favorable and have severely questioned your judgment.
