#FarewellRedi: Here is why she is the Queen of clap-backs according to us

Redi Tlhabi ends her 12 year run with 702 on Thursday.

While she has been at the forefront of driving some of the most exciting, important and compelling conversation over the years, it's her feisty character that's made her one of South Africa's greatest on-air talents.

We couldn't help ourselves and have put together a compilation of her most face flushing responses, both off and on-air.

The no-holds-barred conversation with Esethu Hasane in 2016 is top of the list.

In 2015, she very politely explained to to Nelson Mandela’s former PA and confidant Zelda la Grange why her tweets about President Jacob Zuma making white people 'feel unwelcome' were problematic.

In a thread of 15 tweets, Thlabi said La Grange may want to introspect over her statements: " Your injudicious reaction to JZ suggests it is not he who is saying you are not welcome in SA. It is what YOU are hearing. Time to explore WHY."

Her response to the Democratic Alliance's Gavin Davis, after she raised a complaint about the party’s intrusive electioneering calls and SMSs last year also made headlines.

What are some of your most memorable moments?
