Popular SuperSport presenter Robert Marawa took to his Twitter handle to announce that he has been fired from the station.
In a message that angered his fans, Marawa said he received a text informing him that he should not bother coming to the studio for Thursday Night Live show.
The network has however rejected claims that they fired him via text, saying they had communicated the decision to Marawa days earlier.
“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 endeavors,” SuperSport spokesperson, Clinton van der Berg told the publication.
South African media Sports24 reports that fans of Marawa have been angered by this decision by SuperSport and are now threatening to cancel their subscription.
