Just In: Somizi part ways with Metro FM

In the wake of daring allegations made by Mohale against Somizi, the SABC has officially parted ways with Somizi. However, in its official statement, the public broadcaster has it that, it has given media personality Somizi Mhlongo some time off.

The SABC has given the media personality Somizi Mhlongo some time off. This follows a weekend exposé that entailed allegations of abuse from estranged husband, Mohale Mhlongo. Somizi, who presents a weekday show on Metro FM, has apparently asked the public broadcaster for some time off to sort out his personal issues.

The statement that was published on their Twitter account said @METROFMSA management met with Somizi Mhlongo and he has requested to take some time off from work.

At this moment it’s not yet clear how long his break from the SABC will take as calls from Somizi to fall or be called gained momentum. Mohale tabled his abuse experience during an exclusive interview with a producer of Living With Somizi.

However, the public broadcaster issued out the long-awaited update. Taking it to Twitter SABC indicated the new development between the two parties in the wake of abuse allegations.

The Corporation has also noted the comments on social media about Mr Mhlongo and we would like to point out that the public service broadcaster does not condone any acts of abuse and violence”.

According to an audio clip that was released, Mohale, among other allegations, said he wanted nothing from Mhlongo’s lucrative estate even though they were married in a community of property.

“All I wanted is a car and my clothes because he damaged my car,” he said, noting he would only fight for the division of the estate if Mhlongo did not comply with his demand. Detailing his first alleged violent experience from the popular Idols SA judge, Motaung said Mhlongo went to Durban while he remained in Joburg.
