Two of the SABC8 visit the Troyeville Hotel – 22 September

The Troyeville Hotel will host Foeta Krige and Krivani Pillay. Foeta’s blow-by-blow account of the capture of the SABC and the formation and fight for freedom of speech by the SABC8 is an intense and compelling read. He is a veteran journalist with 37 years of experience in print media, television and radio.

For the past fourteen years Foeta has been the executive producer of the current affairs programmes of the SABC’s Afrikaans radio station, RSG. Foeta was one of the first to push back against SABCs clamp down on journalism and press freedoms.

Krivani Pillay is a passionate and recognised journalist. She has worked as a journalist for over 15 years, as a field reporter, current affairs producer, bulletin anchor and current affairs news anchor for Newsbreak on Lotus FM. She was the executive producer for current affairs at SABC News when she made a stand as part of the SABC8.

Foeta and Krivani will be in conversation with Luke Hutchinson about his book, The SABC8, at the Troyeville Hotel on Sunday the 22 September.

Dinner is from 18:00 or earlier, come through for sundowners before dinner
The discussion will start at 18:30
