According to the channel, Makamu, the founder of Endless Hope Bible Church in Alberton, voluntarily took a decision to step down to allow the internal investigation to take place.  The channel said in its statement that it stood firm in establishing two sides to the story and will do a rigorous investigation to establish the truth around the circumstances of the recording.

Head of channel Bokani Moyo said Makamu indicated the recording was done in 2017 and maintained his innocence when they spoke to him."Bishop Makamu says the lady in the recording worked for him and their conversation was not sexual in any manner and it was altered to extort money from him. He says he thought the matter had been resolved back then but it suddenly emerged again three weeks ago. Bishop Makamu suspects his character is being assassinated." headtopics.com

She added: “As a channel, we take this recording very seriously. We have started with an internal investigation and are reaching out to the lady in the recording to find out the events around the recording. One of our properties, Amabhishop, reveals behind the scenes shenanigans that pastors do and bishops engage in and impose on the public. We cannot ignore a recording of this nature where one of our hosts is implicated. We have to establish the facts and truth before Makamu comes back as part of the team."
