Nikiwe is an anchor on CNBC Africa, where her velvet voice and her firm but quiet strength has won plaudits across the continent. Prior to this, Nikiwe was current affairs anchor on the agenda-setting morning current affairs programme, AM-Live, which she co-hosted with John Perlman. She worked as a trainee news reporter at Cape Talk and Talk Radio 702 and describes herself as a political animal who reads constantly. In the next 10 years Nikiwe intends studying further (she is currently reading for an honours at Wits University), especially in the field of African development. She loves spending her spare time with her family (which includes a lively five-year-old son), running, reading, going to movies and the theatre and travelling.
