The South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) has announced that it has terminated Thato Sikwane also known as DJ Fresh’s contract with immediate effect.
The SABC released a statement today revealing that the termination follows unsuccessful engagements between SABC radio management and Sikwane.
The SABC further indicated that termination of Fresh’s contract was subsequent to his usage of offensive language on-air, resulting in the SABC being found guilty and sanctioned by the Broadcasting Complaints Commission of South Africa (BCCSA) for contravention of clause 6 of the BCCSA’s Code of Conduct.
In addition to his conduct brought the SABC into disrepute.
“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,” read part of the statement.
