The South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) confirmed the news on Twitter today that Somizi requested some time off and the management has allowed him.

The Corporation tweeted: “The SABC can confirm that @METROFMSA management met with Mr. Somizi Mhlongo and he has requested to take some time off from work. Management has granted Mr. Mhlongo permission to do so.”

 SABC also acknowledged the commentaries made by social media users on Somizi’s matter. The broadcaster said it does not condone abuse and violence.

“The SABC has also noted the comments on social media about Mr. Mhlongo and we would like to point out that the public service broadcaster does not condone any acts of abuse and violence,” tweeted the SABC.

 Viewers, however, are still not satisfied with the SABC’s decision.
