The South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) on Friday announced that it has parted ways with top sports broadcaster Robert Marawa.

In a terse statement, the SABC said: “Robert Marawa departs following the conclusion of the MSW [Marawa Sport Worldwide], which Marawa presented both on METRO FM and Radio 2000 simultaneously”.

The SABC also announced the departure of Vaylen Kirtley. She presented the sport on Morning Live.

“The SABC would like to wish Mr. Marawa and Ms. Kirtley well in their future endeavours and appreciates their contribution to SABC sport programming,” said the statement.
