Can we discuss just how much we were so not ready for abrupt changes on our television and radio scene in South Africa?  On Monday we were presented with new programme scheduling on various radio stations including Ukhozi FM, Metro FM and Motsweding FM just to name a few.

Just as the lovers of radio were familiarising themselves with the new changes, another one of Mzansi's  favourite radio broadcaster has announced their departure from Kaya FM - Mapaseka Mokwele.

The Radio and Television broadcaster recently announced that she is bowing out from the iconic radio station. Her show, Home With Mapaseka was immensely loved by many of the station's listener's especially since it served as a refreshing alternative to powerful commercial radio content within the local radio industry.

The last seven years has seen Mapaseka sizzle on her 7pm- 9pm slot. This slot in particular was previously occupied by another great broadcaster, Thabiso Sikwane. Upon Mapaseka's announcement, many of her fans mentioned that her presenting skills remained unmatched and that she made them feel at home.

Mapaseka's words from an extract on the official press release read as follows:''“My journey at Kaya FM has been nothing short of amazing! The time has come for me to move on and focus on other avenues of my life and career. I will miss the conversations and great insights from all the Afropolitans, contributors and producers,”

Other radio broadcaster's that have recently vacated their positions include, Relebogile Mabjota. The multi talented star recently announced that she is currently serving her notice on 702,as it was earlier reported that she didn't wish to leave on bad terms therefore Relebogile is set to join the breakfast team on SABC's Metro FM only in May 2019.

We are waiting with bated breath to see where Mapaseka Mokwele will be working her magic next.
