Uproar over Sakina Kamwendo’s abrupt removal from SAfm show

Popular SAfm radio host Sakina Kamwendo had her morning show cut abruptly by management, halfway through the allotted hour on Friday. The producers of the show were instructed to take Kamwendo off air and fill in the time with any available music.

The show that was shut down was Kamwendo’s final show with the station and management is alleged to have been angered by how Kamwendo vocalised to the listeners that she had been kept in the dark about her future with SAfm and the SABC after the end of her contract. She also went on to mention challenges in the past when staff at the SABC were demoralised.

According to colleagues at the SABC, Kamwendo first heard from other sources that she was no longer going to present the morning show and that another presenter had already been signed to take her place.
