Fired Ukhozi FM radio DJ, plans to challenge his “unfair” dismissal by the Durban based station.

Yesterday Linda 'Mr Magic' Sibiya, the popular radio and television personality hosted a brief media conference at Durban City Hall.

He told the media that he was given just five hours to respond to a dismissal letter presented to him by the station manager Bonga Mpanza.

Communication workers union representative Thami Mzileni says there are grounds of unfair dismissal as Sibiya should have been given a minimum of 48 hours to respond.

Ukhozi FM has over 7.7 Million listeners, with Vuka Mzansi carrying the largest morning show listenership.

Sounding relatively calm Sibiya, a renowned motivational speaker tweeted: “Michael Jordan"-I've failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed".

He also wrote; “Les Brown - In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of FAILURE”.

If you fall, fall on your back .If you can look up, You can get up" oh nkosi kwaaa I'm motivating myself."
