Swazi Observer - - ENTERTAINMENT - Tshisalive

JO­HAN­NES­BURG- Co­me­dian and ra­dio per­son­al­ity Tumi Mo­rake has lifted the lid on racial slurs she's been re­ceiv­ing since join­ing the Jacaranda Break­fast ra­dio show. Tumi, who joined the sta­tion three months ago, said the racist com­ments were am­pli­fied af­ter she, along with her co-host Martin Bester, dis­cussed Steve Hofmeyr's can­celled New Zealand gig on air on Tues­day. "You are the most an­noy­ing per­son on ra­dio...please re­sign and go to the bush," read one of the mes­sages. "You must re­sign and leave our land alone. You black South Africans mess up ev­ery­thing in our beau­ti­ful land. With your gov­ern­ment, crime and swaarheaid [sic]," read an­other mes­sage.
