The South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) on Tuesday said it had terminated the contract of Thato Sikwane, also known as DJ Fresh, with immediate effect.
In a statement released on Tuesday, the broadcaster said termination followed unsuccessful engagements between SABC Radio management and DJ Fresh, subsequent to his usage of offensive language on-air.
The SABC was found guilty and sanctioned by the Broadcasting Complaints Commission of South Africa (BCCSA) for the contravention of Clause 6 of the BCCSA’s Code of Conduct.
“Mr. Sikwane was afforded an opportunity to remedy his contractual breaches, which he failed and/or refused to do. This conduct resulted in the irretrievable breakdown of the trust relations between the SABC and himself,” the statement read.
