Some irked Ukhozi FM listeners have launched an online manhunt for presenter Zama Ngcobo, calling for her resignation.
Apparently fade up with what’s going on in the station, the disgruntled listeners decided to take bull by the horn. Thus, taking to social media on Tuesday, they opened a Facebook page titled “We hate you Zama Ngcobo”.
Within a few hours of its creation, the page had already attracted over 2100 supporters. Also, different posts and opinions have emerged on why the Vuka Mzansi morning breakfast show host has to resign.
For the most part, some listeners do not like the presenter because she is allegedly rude to listeners and often makes derogatory comments on air. There was a particular reference to an incident that happened during her show on Monday when she referred to a KwaZulu-Natal socialite Qhubinja Ntombela as “a thing” on air.
One of the posts read;
“Let us fix one thing here, we are not angry because Zama said something about Qhubinja but we are standing on behalf of every listener that likes Ukhozi to say we are tired of Zama. She can’t talk to people properly. There are words she uses which are undermining. What is she teaching our youth by calling people ‘things’ on air and then move on like she never said a thing.”
While some listeners grabbed the opportunity to school Zama on how to be presenter, others called for her to be disciplined like her counterparts.
“Zama Ngcobo doesn’t respect listeners. We as a community or listeners who love Ukhozi and don’t want to see it sink we would like to see this sorted. We saw Zondo, Mr Magic and Daddy being disciplined. Why are steps not taken against Zama or does she have cosy relationships with bosses? please explain.”
Meanwhile, Zama bluntly refused to make a statement about the issue. Nevertheless, SABC spokesman Kaizer Kganyago said the station refrains from commenting on unofficial complaints. In other words, the matter cannot be investigated by the station if its not officially lodged.
