It is no longer news that Xolani Khumalo has been let go by the channel Moja Love, where he used to anchor Sizok’thola, a show that seeks to expose drugs and druglords in the cities.
The show was a big hit with many South Africans and earned praise far and wide. However, during one of the filming, Xolani Khumalo reportedly had a brush with one of the alleged druglords and ended up accidentally killing him.
The incident reverberated across South Africa and that segment of the show was eventually not aired. Instead. Khumalo found himself in court to hear charges of killing another man. he had made a couple of appearances so far, each time surrounded by supporters.
The supporters usually wait outside until the end of each court session and then continue with their hailing, as well as asking for his unconditional release.
