Days after making headlines for her sudden exit from Kaya 959, Unathi Nkayi has addressed a number of allegations. Last week the media personality made headlines when Kaya announced in a statement that the “Idols SA” judge’s contract was being terminated with immediate effect.
Following this, a report by City Press revealed that Unathi and her colleague, Sizwe Dhlomo were allegedly involved in an argument which saw the singer lay a formal complaint with the HR department, claiming that Sizwe was verbally abusive and showed unprofessional conduct for not being on time for his show. Sizwe took to Twitter to tell his side of the story calling the claim malicious.
Now Unathi has taken aim at Sizwe and Kaya 959. Addressing the matter, Unathi said that she had been silenced by the radio station and that she never accused Sizwe of any GBV act.
4. New COVID variant sparks international alarm
NEW COVID VARIANT: WHAT WE KNOW— BNO Newsroom (@BNODesk) November 26, 2021
– B.1.1.529, to be named Nu
– 32 mutations in spike protein
– Earliest known case: South Africa, Nov. 12
– Fears it could be more transmissible, evade immunity
– UK & Israel impose travel bans
– SA reports 2,465 new cases, up 321% from last week
Global authorities have reacted with alarm to a new coronavirus variant detected in South Africa, with the European Union and the United Kingdom among those tightening border controls as researchers sought to find out if the mutation was vaccine-resistant. Hours after the UK banned flights from South Africa and neighbouring countries and asked travellers returning from there to quarantine, the World Health Organization (WHO) cautioned against hasty measures, and a South African scientist labelled London’s decision a symptom of “vaccine apartheid.”
The WHO also classified the B.1.1.529 strain as a “variant of concern,” saying it may spread more quickly than other forms. Infections in South Africa had risen steeply in recent weeks, coinciding with detection of the variant now designated as omicron. The organization said it would take weeks to determine how effective vaccines were against the variant, which was first identified this week.

Chelsea defender Ben Chilwell will be out for at least six weeks with a knee injury but the Blues hope he will not need surgery. The 24-year-old England left-back suffered the problem in Tuesday’s 4-0 Champions League win against Juventus. “Ben has a partial injury of his ACL,” said Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel. “The next six weeks will tell the story actually if he makes it and if he will be fully available after the six weeks, or if he needs surgery after that.”
He added: “Right now I only care about the six weeks. We are very positive because the first reaction of his body is very positive. Hopefully it stays like this so now the full focus of everybody is on the next six weeks, to try to bring him back to play. It’s a very responsible decision, so there’s no rush, no pressure.”
