SABC spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago earlier confirmed Bonang’s resignation to TshisaLIVE but would not be drawn into commenting on any of the claims.

After more than a decade on 5FM DJ Fresh was moved to the Metro FM breakfast show‚ and was joined by Somizi as his co-host.

Unathi Msengana also resigned from the station on Friday last week‚ and Glen Lewis left the station after 22 years last month.
