Last month, the 46-year-old shared the news that he would no longer be hosting shows on the pay-channel.

Marawa told the public on social media that he was informed less than two hours before the start of his Thursday Night Live with Marawa show on SuperSport 4 via SMS not to show up for work.

"I would like to thank all those who have supported my journey as a sportscaster and those I've worked with at SuperSport," he posted.

Marawa earlier alluded to unhappiness in the workplace via another tweet: "Imagine paying for a service where people who are guilty of sexual harassment are employed and encouraged to work".

In another message to viewers wanting to know what happened, he said: "One day u will ALL know. It will cost me my life, but you will know" adding that "The Mafia! Incorporated with lackeys. An amazing story." 

Marawa was previously fired from the SABC in July 2017, but later rehired, and he was previously also fired from SoccerZone on SABC1.

In the meantime, Marawa has been recording short videos on Twitter interviewing retired football stars, current dignitaries and analysts.
