"I received a text around 18H50 tonight informing me that I should not bother coming to Studio for Thursday Night Live with Marawa Show on @SuperSportTV... I would like to thank all those who have supported my journey as a Sportscaster & those I've worked with at Supersport!", said Marawa.

In previous tweets, Marawa revealed that there might be sexual harassment within SuperSport ranks which has lead many to believe that could be the reason behind his dismissal.

SuperSport responded in a statement and said Marawa's dismissal is part of restructuring the channel.
