Héritier Lumumba says he released audio of Nathan Buckley conversations as former Magpies coach had time to ‘own the truth’

Former AFL player Héritier Lumumba has defended his decision to release audio of conversations he says he had with people at Collingwood, including former coach Nathan Buckley, in 2014.

Speaking on ABC’s News Breakfast, Lumumba renewed his criticism of his former club, accusing it of “a continuation of misconduct, a continuation of dishonesty” in its handling of racism.

On Tuesday, Lumumba posted to social media audio recordings of past conversations with Collingwood figures including Buckley.

One in particular followed the furore over former club president Eddie McGuire’s comments on radio that Sydney Swans great Adam Goodes should be used to publicise the musical King Kong. Lumumba had spoken publicly, condemning what McGuire had said.
