VIDEO: CCTV footage showed moment Mr JazziQ didn't rape a woman, Ngcebo mcobothi, in the elevator by grabbing her waist and trying to her kiss forcefully

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that CCTV footage showed moment Mr JazziQ didn't rape a woman, Ngcebo mcobothi, in the elevator by grabbing her waist and trying to her kiss forcefully. 

Statement by Mr Tumelo Manyoni (Mr JazziQ) Regarding Allegations of Sexual Harassment Johannesburg, 28 May 2024:
It came to our attention that an X (formerly Twitter) post, published just over a week ago, alleged that Tumelo Manyoni, known professionally as Mr JazziQ, sexually harassed and forcefully tried to kiss YFM drive time show producer Ms. Ngcebo Mcoboti on Thursday, 23 May 2024. 
The incident allegedly took place inside the offices of the popular Johannesburg-based youth radio station just moments before his scheduled interview on the platform. 


In the tweets, Ms. Mcobothi claims that Mr. JazziQ sexually harassed her after she rejected his advances. She further alleges that he forcefully tried to kiss her in a lift. Upon seeing news of the alleged assault on the said social media platform, Mr JazziQ and his team promptly contacted YFM’s station manager, Haseena Cassim, requesting CCTV footage of the alleged incident. 
The basis for this request was for Mr JazziQ to offer a detailed response to the damaging allegations by providing irrefutable evidence that they have no basis in truth or fact. 

Understanding the socio-economic climate of South Africa in relation to the question of gender-based violence (GBV), he recognised the significance of having evidence to challenge the baseless accusation in a way that would remove all reasonable doubt as to his alleged actions. Four days after the footage was initially requested, YFM has responded (see Appendix B) stating that the said lift has no cameras. 
In addition to this, the station has also distanced itself from Ms Mcobothi’s allegations, stating that she is a freelancer and that the station does not support any of the claims she made on social media. 

The response by YM has left Mr JazziQ with no option but to utilise the other available evidence at his disposal, recognising the limitations it poses as it does not capture what transpired inside the lift. However, this evidence provides adequate circumstantial evidence to help us arrive at a reasonable conclusion. 
The video evidence provided by Mr. JazziQ’s videographer, and which has since been published, shows Ms. Mcobothi entering the building and the lift along with Mr. JazziQ, his team, and another famous artist joining him for the interview. 

Mr. JazziQ is seen taking a picture with a fan after Ms. Mcobothi entered the lift ahead of him, with several other people in tow. Seconds later, the entourage is seen exiting the lift, with Mr. JazziQ and his PR manager walking behind Ms. Mcobothi, who is leading them into the studio. 

Three points are important to note. Firstly, at no point was Mr JazziQ alone with Ms Mcoboth in the lift – they were in the presence of at least 5 other people at all times. The second is that Mr JazziQ and Ms Mcobothi were never in close proximity as she entered the lift before him. Him being the last to enter means that he was also closest to the elevator doors – with no less than 5 other people between them. 

Finally, the lift was traveling just one floor up – a distance that took a few seconds at best. For Ms Mcobothi’s allegations to be true, Mr JazziQ would have needed to enter the lift, wade through 5 other people, position himself next to her, attempt an assault on her in full view of the other people in the lift, and then out of the lift in barely 10 seconds that it took the lift to get just one floor up. 

This both improbable and illogical – especially as it would require that all persons in the lift, including women, would be complicit in what can only be described as atrocious actions. Mr JazziQ is many things – a young man who, like all young men his age, parties and gets involved in romantic relationships with women. 

What he is not, is a perpetrator of violence of any form, against women. It is not an accident of history that he has never before been accused of any form of sexual misconduct.
