Looking at a previous report, Briefly News wrote that a march headlined by renowned poet Mzwakhe Mbuli to the South African Broadcasting Commission (SABC)'s offices in Auckland Park is being planned to have sportscaster Robert Marawa returned to the airwaves.
Briefly News reported that the veteran local radio and television sportscaster was at the receiving end of a second sacking from the public broadcaster in four years on 30 July.
At the time, his departure was confirmed in a statement by the SABC before Marawa later shared a screenshot of the text message he said was sent to him advising that his services would no longer be required, News24 reported.
