Presenter

Africa Melane

Africa Melane’s wide-ranging interests and relentless curiosity stand him in good stead to host Weekend Breakast on 702 and CapeTalk, a show that ranges from international headlines to must-visit events.

Every Saturday and Sunday morning from 6:00 – 10:00 Africa unpacks the news of the week – at a weekend pace. He takes the time to engage with the audience on stories that matter, and unpack the issues that these raise. Because it’s the weekend – Africa will also find out what it is that listeners must do, must see, must taste and must try.

An accountant by training, Africa has spent a decade in broadcasting, both on and off-air. He is open-minded, compassionate and committed to making a difference.
