Pastor Zondo suspended!

Pastor Zondo, a well-known motivational speak on Ukhozi FM has been suspended.

Last week, a video of what appears to be the Pastor, was leaked online. The person is naked and it seems as if he doesn't realise he was being filmed.

There were conflicting media reports, with some people saying Zondo had admitted it was him but was unaware that he was being filmed, while other reports indicated that Zondo was being blackmailed by the woman who took the video. It's alleged he is married and was having an affair with the woman.

In the meantime, the SABC has suspended him from Ukhozi FM.

“The South African Broadcasting Corporation’s (SABC) Radio management have taken the decision to not schedule Pastor St(h)embiso Zondo’s until further notice on Ukhozi FM’s breakfast show ‘Vuka Motivation’. This follows the unfortunate incident of the release to the public, a video and photos purported to be of Pastor Zondo in a compromising position. The decision was taken following careful consideration, as to the negative impact this situation would have on the credibility of the said programme the Pastor was contributing to, as it deals with morality issues. The impact on brand Ukhozi FM and what the public broadcaster stands for also had to be considered,” says SABC Spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago.
