Former Minister Tito Mboweni weighs in on the Rbert Marawa issue. The return of Robert Marawa to SABC has been going on for a while and FORMER minister of finance Tito Mboweni has decided to share his thoughts on the Robert Marawa issue. He was very serious about the matter as he went as far as suggesting a petition in order to bring back Marawa to the SABC.
He wrote: “Radio 2000 is one of the good SABC radio stations. Great line up. Always listening on my home drive to Makgobaskloof. But poor on commercial advertising income. What happened to the great Robert Marawa sports show? I missed something. Let him return! I demand. Petition time.”
His thoughts on the matter echoed what most of his followers thought as they agreed with him
Joseph Shadung shared the same sentiments and wrote: “I can’t believe I agree with my grandfather Tito Mboweni for the first time in my life. Marawa must come back to SABC indeed.”
Kgapu said: “Yes, now you are talking former minister. Please use your connections up there to demand his return. We are starving, now only Vuma radio listeners in Katlehong are benefitting alone. Marawa always said that there is someone in government who does not want him.”
However some came after him saying he was to blme for the financial crisis at the SABC.

He wrote: “SABC came with a begging bowl to Treasury many times seeking a bailout so that it does not have to cut its prime-time content. This request was denied and hence the culling of so many quality presenters. I just forgot the name of the gentleman who was minister for finance then.”
On the 27th of November loyal upporters braced the cold and rain and marched to SABC to make their demands heard on the Robert Marawa issue and Tito joins masses of football fans, artists, politicians, former football stars who are calling for Marawa’s return.
Former soccer star Fees Moloi had said: “Marawa’s show was educational and entertaining but now that he’s gone, the SABC has got nothing to offer to listeners. I have nothing against those who replaced him but my issue is the lack of content. I strongly feel his dismissal was unfair. The SABC had a personal vendetta against him. For this reason I shall fight for the reinstatement of Marawa.”
