Unexpected|| Powerful Radio Station In SA Has Suspended Their Popular DJ & 2 Others Of His Team

Ukhozi FM has suspended Sqgemeza and two producers following an internal investigation.

Three Vuka Africa Breakfast Show members have been suspended by Ukhozi FM. The three are the very well-known names Sipho Sqgemeza Mbatha, content Producer Babheke Mthethwa and technical producer Mandla Magwaza have been shown the door. The station has not revealed how long the suspension is going to last. So far Mroza Buthelezi will be joined by Siya Mhlongo who will be replacing Mbatha to co-host the show. A statement released by the SABC communications department, Ukhozi FM said that the management regrets to inform listeners that three members of the breakfast show team have been unscheduled following an internal investigation.

These include a host and two producers of the show. But the announcement further stated that the management will not discuss any matters related to the suspension as the employer - employee is run by the Corporation policies. So far measures have been put by the management to make sure that all programs run accordingly. The breakfast show Aires between 6am and 9am. It is said that the station will introduce Bingelela Mpanza who won the Winnie Mahlangu female presenter in ,2021. Mpanza is expected to do the Sunday show 3 am to 6 am.

Sqgemeza is one of the mainly loved broadcaster and he has many followers, we hope whatever led to his suspension will be solved without him losing his job. So far we have seen many people leaving Ukhozi and others being changed to other shows. A sign that a lot is going on behind the doors. Management must be having difficulty keeping the older staff member maybe thus why old broadcasters are being removed one by one. Zimiphi Biyela also was removed from a show which she had always broadcasted but at least she still has a job. Dudu Khoza the long standing broadcaster has always maintained her popular slot between 9am and 12 pm .
