Sports broadcaster Robert Marawa didn’t know the SABC has given him the boot he heard from someone who heard from someone else that the broadcaster was done with him.

He revealed on social media when people were verifying if he was really leaving. “I believe so. I had to hear via SABC personnel who received notice via internal mail. Go figure,” he responded.

The SABC confirmed that they will no longer be working with the veteran broadcaster.

Their statement read as follows:

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.

Ms. Sully Motsweni, Group Executive: Sport stated “Mr. Marawa contributed immensely to the Sport brand within the organization, especially on radio station Metro FM. It was hard for us to accept but we concede to his decision”.

The SABC would like to thank Mr. Marawa for his service to SABC Sport and Radio at large and the corporation wishes him well in his future endeavours.
