Sport presenter and popular sport Radio host of the SABC's Metro FM Robert Marawa has officially left the Broadcasting Corporation.
This comes after the suspension of his radio show producer Beverly Maphangwa, who was suspended for including a commentary audio which was part of Multichoice Super Sport (a rival with of SABC) and featured it on Metro Fm.
Robert Marawa on his twitter account felt that he was the one who played the audio clip on air and if “according to the SABC” that was against their code of conduct then, He is the one to be suspended not his show producer Beverly Maphangwa.
Since then he took a leave of absence from the station in solidarity with Beverly Maphangwa suspension and was also in talks with the station about the matter.
In the statement the public broadcaster said: "SABC Sport has accepted his decision to repudiate his contract with the SABC which he entered into with SABC Sport on 6 June 2017. The SABC engaged Robert Marawa several times to try and remedy the situation."
The future is not clear where will the radio Jockey head to but rumours say other broadcasting stations are keen to have him on their panel.
