Moja Love has terminated channel's popular drug-busting show, Sizok'thola host Xolani Khumalo's contract amid ongoing murder investigation.

Khumalo is facing murder charges following the death of alleged drug dealer, Robert Varrie, who was the subject of a drug bust in Katlehong.

According to his family, Varrie died after he was interrogated and assaulted by Khumalo and crew.

Khumalo handed himself over to police in September and appeared in the Palm Ridge Magistrate's Court where he was released on R20,000 bail.

In the statement released on Friday, Moja Love said it would not be commenting further on matters related to Khumalo.

"Moja Love TV Channels has terminated its relationship with Xolani Khumalo, presenter of one of the channel's leading shows."

Khumalo is expected back in court on 21 November.

The channel did not share the reasons for the sudden dismissal but wished him well in his future endeavors.
