Cape Town – Eyewitness News presenter Mark Esterhuysen has been given the boot after he swore several times during a news bulletin.

Esterhuysen, who read the news at 01:00, used the word "fuck" repeatedly during the broadcast.

Eyewitness News has since posted an apology to their listeners on their Facebook page in which they also state that Esterhuysen's contract with the radio station has been terminated with immediate effect.

Mark Esterhuysen tweeted the following on Tuesday: "No regrets about my bulletin. Don't believe what the capitalists and racists say. That's all for now."
