Robert Marawa is one of South Africa’s most recognizable broadcasters, the media personality has been in the entertainment industry for several decades and he has solidified himself as a household name.
According to Media, Robert was allegedly hospitalized for two weeks at an undisclosed private hospital in Johannesburg following a new health scare.
TV and radio sports presenter Robert Marawa was allegedly admitted to hospital, again.
This time, the broadcaster, who recently rejoined the SABC in a historic move that will see his popular sports show aired on Metro FM and Radio 2000, was allegedly set to have spent almost two weeks at an undisclosed private hospital in Joburg.
Media learnt of Marawa’s health scare after his fans started asking about his whereabouts since he was last seen on TV during the first round matches of the Fifa World Cup.
As a result of Marawa’s health issues, SuperSport had no choice but to schedule only Carol Tshabalala and Neil Andrews to host shows during the rest of the tournament, held in Russia.
Marawa also failed to MC the launch of former Bafana Bafana coach Clive Barker’s book at Exclusive Books in Rosebank, Joburg on Thursday night. Organisers then opted for Bafana Bafana legend Shaun Bartlett. “We were shocked to find out only at the event that Marawa was not coming,” said Barker’s son Garvin.
