Popular South African sports presenter was on Thursday fired via text hours to his talk show “Thursday Night Live With Marawa” which airs on Supersport.

The 46-year-old revealed the same to his shocked fans in a tweet while thanking those who have supported his journey in the industry.

Marawa’s co-presenter Thato Moeng was alone on air, where she hosted the likes of Banyana Banyana coach Desiree Ellis, ex-Bafana Bafana captain Neil Tovey, and the retired Teko Modise and Siyabonga Nomveth.

Probed about the unceremonious sacking, he responded that “One day you will ALL know. It will cost me my life but you will know.”

Supersport has since clarified that Marawa was aware of an impending restructuring which the company is currently undertaking in their sports department.

“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.”

But some of Marawa’s fans suggested that a tweet he posted after 3am on Thursday may have played a part in his sudden removal.

“We are grateful for his contribution over the years, and wish him great success in his future endeavors.”
