Unathi Trends After Sizwe Dhlomo Drama

Afternoon Drive-time show host Sizwe Dhlomo trends once again after reports that General Manager Sibongile Mtyali was fired from the station. History seems to be repeating itself as Sizwe Dhlomo is rocked into Kaya 959 drama and this time it is said he allegedly got into a fight with sports presenter Mpho Maboi and Sibongile apparently refused to fire Mpho.

Sibongile Mtyali was reportedly fired on November 25. Apart from the Mpho Maboi drama, it is alleged that Sizwe Dhlomo reported Mpho to management for allegedly being involved in businesses that conflicted with Kaya 959.

Following Sizwe’s alleged report, Sibongile attended a disciplinary hearing which lasted for 3 months.

Sizwe Dhlomo has since decided to clear his name on Twitter by telling his side of the story.

In a series of tweets, Sizwe says he defended former sports presenter Sandile Van Heerden after allegedly being fired. He had agreed to work with a new person however he had complained about Mpho not being on time to work and would sometimes disrupt the quality of the show.

“Our show meeting starts at 13:00. It’s something I instituted when I first got to Kaya. Everyone attends & if you aren’t in the building at the time, you can do so virtually. No problem. Mpho started missing those, literally a week after joining our show. It meant she didn’t know what was being discussed, it meant she would sometimes not have a sports trivia prepped on air & that was jeopardizing the quality of the show.”

Sizwe then said he spoke to Mpho twice but nothing changed.

“So I spoke to her twice (on record) & when she continued, I went to her manager for him to address it. She then skipped her manager & called Sbo instead. I then asked why did you remove a person who obviously could deliver for someone who couldn’t? Sbo’s response was “you will work with whomever we tell you to”. Again I asked “if everyone else can make the meeting, what makes this newcomer to our team so special?” (again, I have all of this on record)….” he concluded.

This drama saw Unathi Nkayi trending because she too was fired earlier this year after her fight with Sizwe when she complained that he arrives late to work.

In her statement, Unathi accused Sizwe of saying some offensive things about her family and marriage which tainted their work relationship.

“This all started when Sizwe made reference to GBV in South Africa in one of his many posts about me, but GBV had nothing to do with the matter. I never alleged at any time that Sizwe committed any act of gender-based violence against me, Sizwe knows this, Kaya knows this,” she said.

“For the record, Sizwe and I both submitted in writing allegations against each other. “Some founded and some were found not to be, from both of us. I have handed the matter to Kaya to handle legally.

“In closing, Sizwe and I are not friends, I decided to distance myself from him the day he decided it was okay to say on air that my marriage failed because of the way I allow my children to prepare umphokoqo wabo.”

But that was not all, their fight was on record and was open for public scrutiny.

“Well, verbal abuse is a very serious allegation so I believe I would have been fired but more importantly, my reputation would have been in tatters. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to hear her side of the story but as I said, the City Press article is mostly true,” said Sizwe.

Tweeps react to the drama.
