It was hard for us to accept but we concede to his decision- SABC

Broadcaster Robert Marawa is officially no longer working for the SABC. The SABC released a statement earlier today confirming the news.

"The South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) would like to announce that it has parted ways with Sports Presenter, Mr. Robert Marawa. SABC Sport has accepted his decision to repudiate his contract with the SABC, which he entered into with SABC Sport on the 6th of June 2017. The SABC engaged Mr. Marawa several times to try and remedy the situation," read the statement.

Group executive of sport Sully Motsweni explained that Robert had been a crucial part of the SABC's sports department but it was all ultimately his decision.

"It was hard for us to accept but we concede to his decision," she explained.

Robert decided to go on voluntary suspension sometime last month after his show's producer had been suspended and he saw it as being unfair.
