SABC spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago at the station revealed at the time:
“He was careless and thought his book was more important than his work. We confirm that Msizi Nkosi is no longer with Ukhozi FM.
“He is a freelance writer and as such when the clauses of the contract have not kept the contract is terminated by the station.
“It was not a mutual decision. I cannot comment on the details surrounding the termination as it is a contractual matter between the two parties. “
Nkosi’s family have asked the media and their fans for confidentiality to deal with their loss at this time.
The South African will share more details of his death and funeral arrangements as they become available.
