Thomas Mlambo Formerly Of Supersport Joins SABC by Slankey: 8:31pm On Mar 09, 2013
He is a soccer icon in the African continent; a lover of the game and a true son of motherland. A budding footballer whose career was cut short by a knee injury. South African former SuperSport presenter Thomas Mlambo ditched his first degree course in law at third year to pursue his other passion for the beautiful game in the media

In an official statement by his former employer Super sport via the social platform Twitter few days ago which goes thus "@SuperSportTV: To confirm, Thomas Mlambo's SuperSport contract concludes at the end of March and we have decided not renew. We wish him well."

Mlambo has since pitched tent with another South African giant television network SABC. We wish him all the best in his career forthwith.

He will surely be missed, he brought so much life and color to Soccer Africa and football analysis on Supersports. Between I wonder why he left, I am sure it was about money. He will be missed.

In house info says, not really about the money, but most staffers were not happy with the way management handled the Mohamodu Gaye incident

He should resume fully at SABC in April. Here is a link to his twitter page where he confirmed it

Gaye was suspended for blasting Kalusha Bwalya in the studio for supporting Hayatou as the sole candidate for the CAF Presidential election. Alot of people were not happy with the way Gaye was treated.
We'll dwefinitely miss Mlambo and Gaye on supersport. Great guys. Love their debates.
Hope they get someone else to argue with Peterside. It's always so interesting watching them.

Aww so he's gone for good sad. Was surprised when I didn't see the vibrant, articulate sports enthusiast when I tuned in to soccer Africa last week. He'll be missed for sure, wish him all the best in his endeavours. They has to be more to why he decided to quit tho, we'll probably never know.
Re: Thomas Mlambo Formerly Of Supersport Joins SABC by Reference(m): 7:57pm On Mar 13, 2013
What. Is this a joke or something. What da. Who watches SABC. He's gone from an international to a regional platform. That's a waste. Sure will miss him. If Kalusha is behind all this then he's lost all respect.
Re: Thomas Mlambo Formerly Of Supersport Joins SABC by k4kenny(f): 8:40pm On Mar 13, 2013
So sad to see him leave ss. Soccer Africa's ratings gonna drop like crazy, heard about d Gaye-Kalusha beaf during AFCON. Its very strange a promising broadcaster would leave an international platform for a local one, something is definitely fishy here. Wishing him all d best sad

Thomas Mlambo and Robert Marawa are my two best presenters in the whole world.
Re: Thomas Mlambo Formerly Of Supersport Joins SABC by Nobody: 8:06pm On Jan 19, 2015
I have wondered for several months about why he ever stopped anchoring Soccer Africa. I suddenly got angry about it today, searched Google and found this.

I knew Gaye will have tons of problem over that honest statement,reason African football is on a back pedal.
