Unathi Nkayi sues Kaya 959 for R1.6m
Unathi Nkayi is suing Kaya 959 for R1.6m after an “unlawful” termination of contract.
In November 2021, the media personality was fired with from Kaya 959 radio station after her dispute with Sizwe Dhlomo, when she accused him of verbal abuse and unprofessional conduct.
Unathi’s legal representative David Feinberg confirmed to TshisaLIVE the radio personality issued a high court summons against Kaya 959.
The summons reflects that Unathi is suing Kaya 959 for R1.3m for contractual damages, R100,000 for delictual damages, and R200,000 for the infringement of her right to dignity, which adds up to R1.6m.
Unathi declined to comment on the matter.
During her sit-down on Gareth Cliff's Uncancelled in early March, Unathi spoke of how her life had been affected after leaving the radio station.
Unathi said “everybody stopped calling” her and giving her business and she stopped paying her mortgage for a year after the saga.
“If I hadn’t paid my mortgage ahead in 2007, my house would’ve been taken, from what Kaya did to me. For the past year I didn’t pay my mortgage at all because I was so ahead.”
In an Instagram post, Unathi said she had lost everything after the saga and had to go to therapy.
“I have been through the most vigorous and painful year of therapy of my life because I lost everything due to a one-sided story that many were too keen to believe.”
