Robert Marawa has reportedly been fired from Supersports. Now we all know of breakup texts but umm I didn’t know some multinational companies also fired their employees the same way.
The ace South African broadcaster recently revealed the shocking news. ”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.” – Marawa disclosed in a tweet
Rumour has it that the reason why Robert Marawa was dismissed from Supersports was because he was vocal about sexual harassment allegations within Supersports. Now whether this is true or not, the Pan-African sports brand has since issued a statement citing restructuring as the reason for Robert Marawa’s dismissal.
“SuperSport is in the process of an exciting refresh of its local presenter line-up, which will be unveiled as part of our new football season campaign. This restructure includes us not pursuing our contractual relationship with Robert Marawa. Robert was personally advised of our decision earlier this week. We are grateful for his contribution over the years and wish him great success in his future endeavours.” — The statement revealed.
All hope is not lost, you can still catch the broadcaster on his SABC radio show. Robert who worked at Supersports for several years, went on to thank his fans.
”’I would like to thank all those who have supported my journey as a Sportscaster & those I’ve worked with at Supersport!” — Robert shared
As expected, his fans on twitter did not take the news lightly. Peep a few reactions:
