Johannesburg- Lerato Kganyago has come out guns blazing over a so-called smear campaign against her.

The TV and radio personality did not mince her words, when she labelled the campaign "malicious, vindictive, and disgusting."

Last Friday Lerato took to Twitter where she revealed that all the abuse and insults that she's been getting from Twitter user, Musa Khawula, was the doing of an 'enemy' in the industry. 

At the time, Lerato threatened to name and shame the female celeb. But she has since changed her mind and has decided to be the bigger person, she recently told The Juice.

Lerato told us that she knows exactly who is behind the campaign, but will not stoop to the celeb's level by revealing her identity.

"If I reveal her name publicly, it could end her career. I also believe that she's using me to stay relevant and I'm not going to give her that satisfaction," she explained. 

Lerato added that she found out who was responsible for the campaign from her peers, who found out from people close to the person being used to slate her on public platforms. 

"I think to go to this extent to tarnish someone's reputation is evil and disgusting. I have decided not take her on because I'm not about that life," she went on to add. 

Lerato explained that what hurt her the most about this entire debacle is that she know's this celebrity's journey in the industry and knows the pain she herself has gone through. "I actually feel sad for this woman. I'm going to pray for her because she's going through something and I hope she gets better. I wish her nothing but the best in life," she said. 

The brunette bombshell, who is set to make her debut on Muvhango and is taking the party scene by storm, told us that she'd rather focus on her career and bagging more gigs. 

You go girl!
