Umhlobo Wenene FM’s drive time co-host Mthobeli August, better known as KCi has been sacked from his show.
The veteran broadcaster, who has been co-hosting Masigoduke with Zizo Tshwete (nee Beda) for the past three years has been downgraded to an evening slot. He has been moved to host Jaiva Mzantsi which is a weekend show that is on air on Friday and Saturday from 22h00 – 24h00.
The station cited an audience decline for his removal from the show.
“Consistent audience decline in the Afternoon drive has necessitated changes in the show as from the 1st of July 2017,” read a statement.
Even though KCi has been sacked from the show, Zizo remains and will be joined by Amaza Ntshanga, and Reggie Solani.
KCi has been at loggerheads with the station before after he attacked the station management on air back in 2007.
But thanks to his fans he was brought back by popular demand. And now this.
