Tbo Touch has been the buzz of town when it was reported that he will be returning to Metro FM after a seven-year hiatus.
According to the Daily Sun, Touch Touch will be joining the station in April, according to a close source. “In the next radio financial year, he will be a part of the station’s new line-up modifications. He’s happy to be back at home “according to the publication
Tbo Touch, according to the publication, did neither confirm or refute the claim when approached. He sent them to the SABC, and Gugu Ntuli, the SABC’s group executive for corporate relations and marketing, assured the outlet that the new lineup will be revealed soon.
It was said that he was removed from Soweto TV for allegedly underpaying employees with a colleague, according to Sunday World.
The publication revealed that Tbo Touch was removed by chairperson Tuis Jabulani Nkutha, who was also in trouble with the station for unfairly dismissing the seasoned media personality from his CEO and non-executive director duties at the television station.
According to Nkutha, Touch and Zulu underpaid employees in a bid to save the station from going bankrupt.
It was said that should he not step down, the channel’s legal adviser had threatened to have him arrested. “In view of the above, you are hereby requested to immediately furnish the four directors and the writer hereof with lawfully executed board resolutions regarding the purported removal or resignation of Mr Malongete and Mr Molefe as directors of Soweto TV,” read a letter as quoted by the publication.
