SuperSport TV release statement after Marawa firing
SuperSport TV have released a statement over the departure of popular broadcaster Robert Marawa.
The drama was broken out by Marawa himself. He tweeted the news of his sudden job loss to his 810 000 followers.
Marawa revealed that he was sent an SMS just an hour before his popular Thursday Night show. The message simply informed the Durbanite broadcaster not to report to the studio.
I received a text around 18H50 tonight informing me that I should not bother coming to Studio for Thursday Night Live with Marawa Show on @SuperSportTV... I would like to thank all those who have supported my journey as a Sportscaster & those I've worked with at Supersport! ✌🏼✌🏼— robertmarawa (@robertmarawa) May 16, 2019
