Cape Town - Bonang Matheba announced that she decided to leave MetroFM, after the SABC refused to allow Matheba to continue with a World Cup Lifestyle show on SuperSport.

The SABC says that no one that works on any SABC platform is allowed to be part of any other broadcasters in any medium.

Subsequently, Matheba decided that she could not agree to those terms as it did not align with her future plans.

"Metro FM is a fine station and it is a pity that my journey with them has been so short.

"I am an independent freelancer and have been working peacefully with all broadcasters over the years.

"My future potential cannot be jeopardised by accepting terms that will not grow my career. I could not agree to the SABC's blanket terms - in restricting me to work with other broadcasters even though my contract with them was on radio.

"Thank you to the team at Metro FM for a wonderful time thus far. Onward and upward!,” Matheba said in a statement.
