Johannesburg - SABC sports presenter Walter Mokoena was suspended following the comments he made about Bafana Bafana coach Joel Santana and captain Aaron Mokoena, The Citizen newspaper reported on Wednesday.

Mokoena said Santana and "Mbazo", the captain, must go after the national team's last Confederations Cup group match loss to Spain in Bloemfontein on Saturday.

His comments sparked a public uproar from fans and even some radio personalities who said comments of that nature were not acceptable.

Mokoena is the anchor of the Coca-Cola Soccer Zone show every Monday on SABC 1.

"The SABC has stopped scheduling Walter Mokoena and he has been informed of that and given an opportunity to respond to issues that were put to him.

"All the necessary steps will be followed to make sure that all the programmes he was assigned to will run smoothly until this matter is finalised," said the public broadcaster spokesman Kaizer Kganyago in a statement.
