Skyz Metro FM has suspended Babongile Sikhonjwa for allegedly coming to work drunk.
Acording to a close source, Sikhonjwa who was drinking with friends the whole night last Tuesday as they celebrated the resignation of former President Robert Mugabe, went to work drunk on Wednesday morning.
He was supposed to present the Vuka Vuka Breakfast show alongside Master E.
The source said Sikhonjwa got to work and passed out while live on air.
“ Sikhonjwa walked into the studio visibly drunk and he fell asleep while live on air,” the source said.
He was immediately suspended and is awaiting disciplinary hearing.
Contacted for comment Sikhonjwa said he was not allowed to make statements about Skyz Metro FM business and directed all questions to the station manager, Godwin Phiri.
Phiri could neither deny nor confirm that Sikhonjwa was suspended.
“If we have any issues with a member of staff, they are dealt with internally and not through the media,” said Phiri.
