— SABC (@SABCPortal)August 4, 2021Upset fans shared their opinions in the comments, saying that Somizi should have been taken off air immediately, rather than waiting for him to ask for time off. They compared Somizi’s situation to that of DJ Fresh, TV personality Katlego Maboe, among others.

@MauGooner said: “But he shouldn’t have to ask to go on leave, if the Corporation does not condone abuse and violence Mr Mhlongo should have been suspended and granted enough time to go clear his name. Unless it’s leave without pay, then this is just paid holiday while this blows over. Do better!”. headtopics.com

Mother reunited with baby after kidnapping

A 7-month-old baby has since been safely returned to his mother after a hijacking in Cape Town on Monday.

So he asked for leave,for how long what happens next. Will the allegations be gone after the leave? It's not like these allegations are been proven in a court of law at least at this moment. This leave is weird. Lucky him…..some media personalities have been fired without trial… Hae he is on suspension until the conclusion of investigations ..but he called it leave so he doesn't look guilty 🤣🤣🤣
