Metro FM sports presenter Mpho Maboi has been suspended from work for allegedly defying her bosses' instructions to publicly apologise for insulting her colleague Lerato Kganyago on Twitter.

Maboi, engaged to former Kaizer Chiefs player Reneilwe Letsholonyane, was muted on Monday.

She will soon be hauled before a disciplinary hearing.

SABC spokesman Kaizer Kganyago confirmed Maboi's pickle.
