Radio and TV Sports presenter Robert Marawa has threatened to leave SABC Radio Metro FM after the broadcaster suspended Beverly Maphangwa, Marawa’s producer for his sports show last week.
Marawa took it to Twitter to express his resentment on the matter saying he would remove himself from the show according to reports.
A source confirmed that Marawa is expected to engage the Public Broadcaster on Wednesday.
“There is a meeting I was told of planned for Wednesday. It was initiated by the SABC but I am not certain who will attend that meeting or what the agenda of the meeting is. The meeting is also yet to be confirmed,” says Marawa.
This follows reports by Sunday World that SABC’s group executive for sports Sully Motsweni alleged unhappiness with Marawa’s behavior and her plans to summon the presenter for a meeting.
“I wouldn’t know or comment on things that have not been said to my face. I also don’t know what “behavior” they are referring to because I go to the SABC, do my job then go home. I also don’t have time for hearsay,”. says Marawa.
