Ukhozi FM has suspended Tshatha for his distasteful social media conduct towards fans on Facebook.
By now, staunch listeners of Ukhozi FM’s breakfast show would have noticed that the lively Khathide Tshatha Ngobe has been muted.
The DJ’s social media conduct has landed him in hot water with Ukhozi’s management team. It all started when Facebook user, Potshozah Ndonga accused Tshatha of taking a strong liking to Maskandi artist, Khuzani Mpungose – which prompted Tshatha to retaliate.
However the drama didn’t end there. Another Facebook fan, Nhlonipho Masente got Tshatha’s blood boiling after inquiring about SABC’s latest scandal between Owen Ndlovu and Ukhozi FM, with regards to the song of the year saga.
The powers that be got wind of this disturbing interaction between Tshatha and the fans on Facebook. The team then swiftly exercised their powers as management.
An inside source tipped off Daily Sun, by providing the following information:
“He (Tshatha) was called for a hearing and he admitted. He apologised to management and he was even willing to apologise on his show, as well as on his Facebook page.”
“However he will have to serve his suspension before he makes his public apologies.” said the source.
SABC Spokeswoman, Mmoni Seapolelo confirmed Tshatha’s suspension:
“The SABC can confirm that Ukhozi FM presenter, Tshatha is not air. However the SABC is not in a position to go into details. “
