Radio 947 DJs Fresh and Euphonik have been removed from air since Saturday.
This after rape allegations surfaced on social media and a rape case was opened at Sunnyside Police Station against them on 13 January.
EWN reports that the pair reached mutual consensus with Primedia Broadcasting to step down from their posts with immediate effect.
Fresh, real name Thato Sikwane, and 37-year-old Euphonik (Themba Mbongeni Nkosi) are employed by 947, owned by EWN parent company Primedia Broadcasting.
They’ve gone onto social media saying they’ve “decided to step away from all public work engagements until such time that the serious allegations have been resolved and the law has taken its course”.
A woman calling herself @Nampree, claimed the presenters drugged and raped her and three other women in 2011.
She wrote: “I was a virgin when y’all did that to me”, adding she had to take anxiety medication before she could speak about the incident on social media.
Acting Primedia Broadcasting CEO Geraint Crwys-Williams says:
“Primedia takes allegations of sexual assault very seriously and ... we have every confidence in the police to investigate this fully to ensure a just outcome.”
Last year Ntsiki Mazwai outed Fresh for rape on Twitter, but was court ordered to delete the tweets.
