Ukhozi FM heavyweight Linda ‘Mr. Magic’ Sibiya has surrendered himself to Johannesburg police.
This follows the arrest of former Edcon Head of Departments Lwazi Thathakahle for fraudulent dealings involving almost R2 million. Mr. Magic is said to be an accomplice in the shady dealings.
It all began when Linda Sibiya received R1.8 million from a retail company for Magic Communications. The money was aimed at funding an honorary event for Ukhozi FM veterans. It is believed the funds were derailed and never reached the SABC and the right avenues for preparations of the events to continue.
Subsequently, Sibiya was given marching orders early in 2014.
The once unstoppable radio personality and businessman has continued to decline for comment throughout the legal battle and the fallout with the SABC.
Linda Sibiya was released on a R 20 000 bail.
