ATT: Estate Property Investment (Pty) Ltd & Motsumi Attorneys, Notaries & Conveyancers
We have noted with concern that on the 7th February 2020 we published an article titled “Tertiary Education pays over P500 000 rent for an unoccupied building” and the picture we since used to go with the article was that of a building owned by Estate Property Investment (Pty) Ltd.
In the photo used on the article, there was no building in the vicinity or greater CBD depicted and therefore our audience has been made to believe that the shared photo of a building at Plot 54350 New CBD, Gaborone was the one unoccupied by the Ministry. We have since learnt that we used a wrong picture to go with the article, and that the owners of the building (Estate Property Investment (Pty) Ltd has no dealings with the said ministry.
The owners of the building depicted on the article are not benefitting from any unlawful rental of unoccupied space and have been aggrieved by the wrongful use of the photo. We seek therefore to apologize to Estate Property Investment (Pty) Ltd for wrongfully depicting their building in the same article. We have since made a retraction of the building picture on the article across our platforms.
