Sebasa Mogale, a South African public broadcaster, was recently suspended over an alleged scam.
The actor was suspended after a media exposé revealed he was involved in a cryptocurrency fraud that allegedly offered a 300 percent return on investment.
The decision to suspend the popular broadcaster, who also appears in South Africa’s iconic television series Skeem Saam, was made following an investigation by the media outlet Carte Blanche that identified him as one of the masterminds behind the fraud that allegedly fleeced more than 100 people.
Gugu Ntuli, the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) group executive responsible for corporate relations and marketing, confirmed Mogale’s suspension.
In a statement, the executive said: “Thobela FM has taken a decision to unschedule Sebasa Mogale, (Ntshirogele) Afternoon Drive presenter, following the Carte Blanche exposé. Mr Mogale is being afforded an opportunity to resolve the issues raised in the recent broadcast which pertain to his personal business dealings involving cryptocurrency.
Ntuli added that the SABC will “leave no stone unturned” in its own probe into Mogale’s role in the scam.
