In the letter Mokoailane demanded to know why he was being axed from the station after five years, despite his show being a hit with listeners. He claimed that Mamontha was “influenced by her husband Thuso”, host of popular Sunday gospel show Makgulong A Matala, to fire him because of their long-standing beef.

“I went further in enquiring if the reason I am not part of the plans is because of my numerous encounters and disagreements with your husband, Mr Thuso Motaung,” Mokoailane wrote.

“I am aware that your husband has personally contacted the former Lesedi FM staff in an attempt to recruit [them]. He further informed them and most people that some of us are going to be fired from Lesedi FM. He had this information even though he is not in management.”

Motaung refused to comment when approached by Sowetan yesterday.

“The second reason I gave you that made [me] assume your husband is behind my exclusion was that after my encounter with him you even stopped greeting me,” Mokoailane wrote.
