Iman Rapetti

News anchor, e.tv

Iman Rapetti is known best for her historic on-air confrontation with former president Thabo Mbeki. The doorstop moment took place on October 2 2007 when Rapetti questioned Mbeki about reports of a warrant of arrest that had allegedly been issued for National Police Commissioner Jackie Selebi, which led to the suspension of National Prosecution Authority boss Vusi Pikoli. Mbeki refused to answer. For Rapetti, now an e.tv news anchor, this is what her job is all about. She believes that as a journalist, she does not just hold the mirror that reflects on society, but rather that she gives it a voice. Rapetti is a journalism graduate from Durban and has also worked in television news in Iran, for the SABC, Business Day and Talk Radio 702. � Jane Steinacker
