Taderera's attorney, Musa Ntsibande, says: "It is our client's belief that Mthimkhulu is being vindictive."
Ntsibande says the two parties entered into a settlement agreement on January 17 2008.
In the agreement Taderera had offered to buy Mthimkhulu out.
"It is our client's belief that Mthimkhulu's defamatory statements are prompted by our client's nonpayment of the balance of the settlement amount, which our client has not paid to her for reasons known to Mthimkhulu and (also) her failure to ensure that the tax affairs of the close corporation (Micromath Trading 428) were properly managed.
"Our client, therefore, can hardly be expected to make the payment to Mthimkulu and release her from the membership of the close corporation until the tax-related queries have been resolved to our clients satisfaction.
"Our client has never been arrested or charged, obviously because the South African Police Service could not find any wrongdoing on our client's part.
"To date my client has never been charged by Sars and Mthimkulu's attempts at extorting R100000 from our client is presently being vigorously defended before court."
