Floyd Shivambu, who is a leader for the EFF says that he wants to know who's responsible for the sacking of Robert Marawa at the SABC.
“Who is this cabal in SABC Sport Live and the SABC which continuously mutilates the broadcaster’s capacity to attract and keep as many listeners and viewers as possible?” said Shivambu on social media.

Marawa posted a WhatsApp text message where he interacted with SABC acting station manager Kina Nhlengethwa in which he was told not to come back to work for his final programme with them.
While many followers were shocked by the announcement, Shivambu pushed Marawa to name the cabal.
“You, Robert Marawa, understand the space and broadcasting craft and many people appreciate it. Name the cabal, we’ll act," said the EFF deputy president.
The public broadcaster has sacked Marawa for the second time after the two parted ways in 2017. Nhlengethwa advised Marawa not to report for duty and that his last show had been cancelled in a text message, which he shared on Twitter.
Robert Marawa fired by SABC without warning
Briefly News previously reported that veteran sports broadcaster Robert Marawa is leaving the South African Broadcasting Corporation and the public station has confirmed the news. The development comes as the Auckland Park-based station introduces new changes in their line-up.
Marawa is one of the most talented and respected sports presenters both on television and radio; his departure will definitely come as a blow to the listeners.
The former SuperSport TV presenter was the host of the well known Marawa Sports Worldwide which aired on both Metro FM and Radio 2000. The embattled public broadcaster released a statement indicating that Marawa leaves together with Vaylen Kirtley.
