Popular South African radio and television personality Robert Marawa was fired by Supersport a few hours before his weekly “Thursday Night Live with Marawa Show” vis test message. Marawa revealed this on social media a few minutes after he received the SMS message writing,

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! ✌🏼✌🏼

While Marawa did not reveal the exact reasons behind the dismissal, the abrupt nature of his dismissal has led to rabid speculation on social media on why he was fired.  When he was asked directly by one of his followers, Marawa chose to be coy only saying,

The consensus on social media, however, seems to be that Marawa was fired for allegedly standing up against se_xual harassment at the broadcaster following some cryptic tweets he posted earlier on.

SuperSport later released a statement on Thursday night which says,

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.
