Glen Lewis Allegedly Suspended On Radio 2000 For Playing Personal Music. Radio presenter Glen Lewis was allegedly suspended on Radio 200 last week for playing music from his memory card which is unacceptable according to the station’s protocol. The suspension caused a turmoil amongst officials.
Senior SABC officials revealed that Glen Lewis ignored the e-mail of suspension and asked Ramakgolo to stop Choane from suspending him.
“Leuba then told Choane not to charge him but he didn’t listen and felt undermined instead,” said one official.
These details were also confirmed by an SABC executive who said Choane, without a warning, went ahead and suspended Glen Lewis, much to the anger of Ramakgolo.
“Leuba sent him another e-mail asking him to rescind the suspension. But Chris realised that Leuba was interfering in the process and opted to report him and Glen Lewis to internal audit for investigations,” said the executive.
One of Glen Lewis’s colleagues, who is also a radio presenter at Radio 2000, confirmed the suspension. “We heard about his suspension. Management said he played music from a memory stick, including his own song. We were also cautioned not to do it as it is against the station’s policy,” said the presenter.
