While the posts were filled with many who shared their heartfelt condolences, others used the moment to share their views on Moja Love’s situation with their former talent Xolani Khumalo who was let go by the channel earlier this month.
“The channel will not be commenting on any matters relating to Mr Khumalo at this stage and wishes him everything of the best in his future endeavours”, read the statement issued by Siyaya TV Channels spokesperson Nonzwakazi Cekete in a statement.
The decision comes after the presenter and his crew in July landed in hot water after an interrogation led to a man’s death.
Many fans and viewers felt that Khumalo being let go was not justified and it seems they haven't forgotten about it.
