Robert was in the news on Sunday after City Press published a story about the bank coming after his Mercedes after he failed to pay residuals on the car.

The story shocked Mzansi and many called out the publication their suspected timing.
Many felt that the story on the paper looked like it was trying to overshadow Marawa’s book launch.

Robert mentioned the paper in his tweet about the book launch And so on forth….!!”

Thank you, Mzansi…!!🙏🏽🙏🏽

@City_Press 🤝🏾”

Rob’s followers felt that The City Press shared bad news about Rob instead of promoting excellent good work in bad taste and unnecessary.

Robert shot to fame in the early nineties as a continuity presenter on SABC1, and South Africa fell in love with him.
He transitioned into sports presenting after that and never looked back.

The book also talks about the many firing incidents that have taken place in his career and the times he was down, and how he rose above all those challenges.
