Hot FM radio has fired RADIO personality and breakfast show presenter Mutale Mwanza with immediate effect.
The dismissal letter from the CEO Oscar Chavula reads:
Dear Ms Mwanza,
It is with profound regret that I must inform you that management has decided to terminate your employment with Hot FM with immediate effect.
We find your brand to be seriously in conflict with the Hot FM brand and values and can no longer allow this trend to continue.
Your latest antics are, in our view, highly disrespectful, unprovoked and unconscionable considering that they were targeted at an elderly national leader. It literally amounts to cyberbullying and we do not condone such in our values and principles.
We believe we have cautioned you enough in the last few months regarding your public conduct and warned you against dragging our brand and company down to your level.
Time has come to part company with you and we wish you well in your future endeavours.
In her now-deleted post on Facebook, Ms Mwanza urged her followers to choose between herself and Lusaka Central Member of Parliament, Margret Mwanakatwe for forthcoming General elections.
“Bio oil or booze. Now let’s be honest, which B would your rather vote for,” reads the post.
