SABC spokesman Kaizer Kganyago confirmed that it had been decided to take Unathi off air until the matter was investigated. 

According to Destiny Man, the discussion around Stellenbosch was scheduled and Unathi was going to ask questions about the issue. 

"We decided to put her off until we finish engaging about the issue. We have no control over DJs and what they do in their private space. But our DJs should know that they are representatives of the brand," he explained. 

It's believed that Unathi could be back at work tomorrow or 'any other day.'
