Robert says he felt he was fighting to do his job

Sports broadcaster Robert Marawa was dismissed from the SABC not so long ago and according to him it was a plan that he feels the broadcaster had been working on for a while.

“They always had a plan to try and see me in the street. When you work it has to be an enabling environment‚ so you can’t always be fighting to do your work. People have to be supporting you‚ in order for you to do the work. So I found that I was wearing boxing gloves more often in trying to get the work done‚ as opposed to having assistance to work. You always found that there was antagonism of some sort‚” Robert told Azania Mosaka on 702.

Robert who went on a self imposed suspension after the producer for his show was suspended said his dismissal was becuase there was a change of management at the SABC.

“You have to remember that that was Metro’s management. The management that came through now in June was SABC sport. So Metro relinquished its power to handle sport to SABC sport‚ so that is why the relationship lasted 15 days‚” he explained.

Robert has not said where he will go but there have been many speculations that he will join Tbo Touch's online radio TouchHD.
