The SABC has shelved Pastor Sthembiso Zondo’s slot on Ukhozi FM’s Vuka Motivation until further notice.
Zondo made news after a video and photos purported to be of Pastor Zondo in a compromising position went viral.
“The decision was taken following careful consideration, as to the negative impact this situation would have on the credibility of the said programme the Pastor was contributing to, as it deals with morality issues. The impact on brand Ukhozi FM and what the public broadcaster stands for also had to be considered,” said the SABC today.
The Daily Sun reported last week that a video had surfaced of Zondo naked, talking on his cellphone. It appeared to have been filmed by a woman in a pink skirt.
Meanwhile, Independent Online (IOL) today reported that Zondo had told his congregation in Durban that they should not delete the footage, but always compare his experience to whatever difficulty they are going through.
