Samora denied being drunk and blamed it on medication.
He went ahead to apologize to listeners and the SABC.
Samora wrote: “To my family, my friends, colleagues and loyal listeners of UMhlobo Wenene FM 88 – 106
Firstly I would like to start off by acknowledging and apologising for the events which took place on the 9th of April 2022 leading up to and during the broadcast of Iqonga Labatsha.It was quite unfortunate and hurtful to see comments after the said broadcast talking to how much I don’t appreciate this opportunity and how I’m not committed to this platform when in actual fact it is quite the opposite. I decided to remain quiet and take the lashing until the matter had been resolved with the necessary stakeholders, to which it now has been.”
