By Thys Khiba – Johannesburg – South Africa’s premier talk station confirmed the resignation announcement of 702 daytime host Azania Mosaka on Tuesday morning.

“As they say, all good things must come to an end. After twenty years of radio, I am stepping away from the microphone to pick up the active citizenry baton through my NGO, Peo Impact Gardens in Soweto,” said Mosaka.

Mosaka indicated that she is going to miss the station and her loyal listeners as she is preparing herself to do community outreach and to use her voice to raise the profile of communities in need.

“My next includes supporting four pillars in our communities: Health – through our vegetable garden, Body and Soul – through our breathwork offering and Mind – via the library program.

I look forward to moving into a space of implementation, physically and actively doing community outreach and to use my voice to raise the profile of communities in need,” said Mosaka.

“Azania has contributed significantly to 702’s success over the last six years. We will miss her and wish her well as she continues to Walk the Talk through her NPO work,” said 702 Station Manager, Mzo Jojwana.

Daytime host Azania Mosaka will be replaced by Relebogile Mabotja who has worked at the station before.

The station confirmed that Mosaka’s last show will be on Friday 19 November 1-3pm. Listeners are invited to tune into her farewell show to bid her a fond goodbye and then to welcome Relebogile Mabotja back to the station on Monday 22 November.

“We are thrilled to welcome Relebogile Mabotja back to the station. We know her voice, fearlessness, and ability to listen and really connect with our listeners will once again hit the right note with our audience,” said Jojwana.

An accomplished radio, tv and news personality Mabotja is expected to make a return to the station’s airwaves on Monday 22 November from 1 to 3pm weekdays.

The 702-audience will remember her as the 702 Early Breakfast show host from 2017 to 2019.

“I look forward to stepping back behind the 702 microphone and growing with the audience as we walk the talk together. Listeners can look forward to light, irreverent and meaningful conversations. I am happy to be back home.” said Mabotja.

702 is South Africa’s biggest regional talk radio station and the country’s leading audio platform for conversations, news, and information. For more than 40 years it’s been a space where people from all walks of life could engage freely; exposing listeners to all sides of the story while holding the powerful to account.
