South Africa: Radio Broadcaster Sacked By SABC For Calling The President A "Zombie."

A presenter with Lotus FM radio (in South Africa), Mr Ravi Govender, has been reportedly fired by the South African Broadcasting Corporation for calling the country's President Jacob Zuma a "Zombie".

Mr Kaizer Kganyago, the spokesperson for the South African broadcaster, confirmed that the presenter contract was terminated immediately after the comment was found on his Facebook page.

Govender admitted he posted the comment on his Facebook page to express his thought following his speech at the opening ceremony at the African National Congress 5th Policy Conference in Johannesburg, South Africa.
