The dismal of YFM content producer came after she tweeted about Nicholas Ninow and has left many social media users trembled.
According to TshisaLive YFM confirmed in a statement over the weekend that it had fired Camagwini Mavovana for her remarks on Twitter about convicted child rapist Nicholas Ninow.
‘The radio station said that on October 16 it was brought to its attention via its social media platforms that the independent contractor and senior content producer had posted “racially discriminatory commentary on her personal social media account relating to a matter of broad public interest”.
Apparently ‘Camagwini had weighed in on Ninow’s conviction, tweeting,’ “Nicholas is representing his race well. Amnesia is something they’re good at, especially when they have to take accountability. Let the dog rot in jail and call it a day.”
According to TshisaLive YFM’s MD, Haseena Cassim said there was no excuse for the statement made by Camagwini and the station had taken action against her.
He then went on and said “The offensive comments do not reflect the views and values of YFM. Ms. Mavovana was immediately suspended following management being made aware of the post. After careful consideration, Ms. Mavovana’s contract with YFM has been terminated.”
Social media was divided on what deemed right for YFM to dismiss Camagwini and others in support of her opinion.
