Moja Love has cut ties with Xolani Khumalo – the presenter of the channel’s popular drug-busting show, Sizok’thola.


In a statement by the channel on Friday, 3 November, it said it would not go into detail about reasons for terminating its relationship with Khumalo.

“Moja Love TV Channels has terminated its relationship with Mr Xolani Khumalo, presenter of one of the Channel’s leading shows, Sizok’thola. The channel will not be commenting on any matters relating to Mr Khumalo at this stage,” the statement reads.

The decision comes after the Sizok’thola host and his crew landed in hot water after an interrogation led to an alleged drug dealer’s death in July.

The man, later identified as Robert “Kicks” Varrie, had been the subject of a drug bust in Katlehong on 19 July, which was attended by the Sizok’thola crew.

Khumalo handed himself over to the Katlehong North Police Station where he was charged with murder and later granted R20 000 bail.

On 19 October, he made his second appearance at the Palm Ridge Magistrates Court where the matter was postponed to 21 November pending the Director of Public Prosecution’s decision on whether it should be transfered to a High Court for trial, EWN reported at the time.

In May, Sunday World reported that Khumalo and Moja Love CEO, Aubrey Tau, had beefed up security after receiving death threats from drug lords.

The publication reported that the drug dealers are said to be possibly working with rogue policemen and women.

Another source claimed that unknown people have been following the pair and driving past Tau’s Johannesburg house.
