Robert Marawa

 

Robert Marawa studied for a Law degree at the University of 
Witwatersrand from 1992 only to be bitten by the broadcasting bug in 
1996. 

He joined SABC1 when the channels were relaunched in their 
present format of SABC1,2,3 respectively in 1996, as a Zulu and 
English continuity presenter 

After almost two years on Simunye boredom crept in and the 
dream of being a sports anchor became priority, something that had 
always been a childhood ambition 

Robert officially started at the then Topsport as an anchor of the 
popular live soccer show Laduma in late 1997, three days after 
successfully going through an audition 

He was thrown straight into the deep-end of France World Cup 1998 
with a total of 48 games to share between two anchors 

Robert "Madluphuthu" Marawa is currently hosting the '083 Sports @6' show from 6-7pm, weekdays on Metro FM. 

He also hosts soccer shows on Supersport 3.
