Bulawayo’s commercial radio station Skyz Metro FM are reported to have suspended one of their presenters Babonngile Sikhonjwa two weeks ago, for misconduct.
The presenter cum- comedian went to work on Wednesday morning heavily intoxicated.
Sikhonjwa who co-hosts the Vuka –Vuka breakfast show with Master E is reported to have been out under disciplinary action on Wednesday morning after a night after the night former president Robert Mugabe handed in his resignation letter.
A source who spoke on condition of anonymity said Sikhonjwa checked in for the Vuka-Vuka session visibly drunk, a development which angered the management.
“He came to work very drunk with signs of heavy partying the previous night. He tried to conduct duties but passed out live on air. The station’s management had no choice but to put him under disciplinary action (suspension) till further notice,” he said.
Efforts to get comments from Sikhonjwa and the station’s manager Godwin Phiri were fruitless as both their mobile phones went unanswered.
