Popular radio station Hot FM has fired controversial radio and TV personality Mutale Mwanza.
Ms Mwanza was until today a co-host of the hugely popular Red Hot Breakfast Show.
The decision to sack Ms. Mwanza was announced by the station’s Chief Operating Officer Oscar Chavula.
Mr. Chavula said Ms. Mwanza was fired for dragging the name of the station to her level.
Below is the full letter from Mr. Chavula.
“It is with profound regret that I must inform you that management has decided to terminate your employment with Hot FM with immediate effect.
We find your brand to be seriously in conflict with the Hot FM brand and values and can no longer allow this trend to continue.
Your latest antics are, in our view, highly disrespectful, unprovoked and unconscionable considering that they were targeted at an elderly national leader. It literally amounts to cyber bullying and we do not condone such in our values and principles.
We believe we have cautioned you enough in the last few months regarding your public conduct and warned you against dragging our brand and company down to your level.
Time has come to part company with you and we wish you well in your future endeavors.”
