Controversial Sizok’thola host, Xolani Khumalo, has been sacked.

In a statement released by Moja Love, the channel revealed it had terminated its relationship with the TV personality, adding that it would not comment further on the matter.

Khumalo, who is currently out on bail, faces murder charges after an alleged drug dealer lost his life during the taping of the show.

The show, which aired on Moja Love, was a quick hit with South African audiences, exposing drug dealers and corrupt government officials.

Khumalo’s loyal supporter and Put South Africa First member, Faith Mabusela, says the channel’s decision risks undoing Khumalo’s good work.

South African audiences have headed online to share their reactions to the news.

One social media user criticised the channel for abandoning Khumalo at his lowest, while another says the decision to scrap the host was a long time coming.

Meanwhile, others slammed Moja Love for destroying Khumalo’s reputation.

Khumalo, through his foundation, says he has been caught off guard by the decision, maintaining that he will continue his work to rid the country of drug peddlers.

He is expected to return to court on the 21st of this month.
