Lo­tus FM’s rep­u­ta­tion is sul­lied

Post - - OPINION -

IT IS with ut­ter shock and dis­be­lief that I read what goes on be­hind the doors of Lo­tus FM. For a ra­dio sta­tion that we so loved and ad­mired, now to be brought into such dis­re­pute, is ab­so­lutely hor­ri­fy­ing.

Read­ing an ex­tract from the book by Vanessa Goven­der gives one goose­bumps. I also don’t think its very dif­fi­cult to fig­ure out who the abuser was be­cause he was just as ar­ro­gant on-air.

It’s a pity that now the en­tire sta­tion, with the staff, are go­ing to be per­ceived in a bad light, as to make peo­ple won­der: “Is this sta­tion there to pro­vide a ser­vice for the peo­ple or to pro­vide a ro­man­tic ser­vice to them­selves?”

This scan­dal is go­ing be the cause of a lot of do­mes­tic prob­lems, with a lot of ques­tions be­ing raised by the spouses of those em­ployed by the sta­tion.

It is in­deed sad and dis­gust­ing to read that our once re­spected, loved, ad­mired and whole­some Ra­dio Lo­tus is now in the throes of de­te­ri­o­rat­ing. JAYSHREE RAJCOMAR Durban
