Radio DJ Linda Sibiya has been fired by Ukhozi FM radio, Isolezwe newspaper reports.

The isiZulu newspaper wrote that the SABC radio station has let go of their morning show presenter.

The report states that Linda was fired because of his affiliation with the African National Congress (ANC).  According to Isolezwe, “Mr. Magic” as he is fondly known, was fired on Thursday.

He reportedly attended several ANC events. In one event, he is said to have publicly encouraged people to vote ANC, something radio DJs are not allowed to do.

He went on further to say, he would soon talk in a press conference.

From Monday the 3rd of February his morning show, Vuka Mzansi, will be hosted by Sipho Mbatha a.k.a DJ Sgqemeza. Khathide Tshathugodo Ngobe will host the afternoon drive.

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