Veteran SABC radio personalities Thuso Motaung and his wife, Mmamontha, yesterday appeared in court on charges of defrauding the public broadcaster.

The two Lesedi FM announcers have since been suspended.

Kaizer Kganyago, an SABC spokesman, said the investigations took more than a year to complete because of the complexities of the case.

"We want to send a message of zero tolerance on corruption," he said.

The Motaungs were married about two years ago.

Thuso, who has been with the station for more than 20 years and is popular for his jokes and hosted a popular Sunday religious programme Makhulong a Matala and a daily midday show, Bua le Yona Mokganni, with an estimated listenership of more than two million.

Mmamontha has her own children's show that teaches good behaviour . She has been with the station for 17 years.

The couple appeared in the Johannesburg commercial crimes' court yesterday.
