Breakfast with Kieno Kammies

Everything you need to start your day.

Kieno Kammies has become synonymous with asking tough questions. His frank and direct approach on the CapeTalk weekday Breakfast Show from 6:00 – 9:00 has won him many fans.

Kieno often invites opinions challenging his own. But it’s not all hard talk with this experienced journalist and radio personality. Kieno cares deeply about the community in which he lives and works. His compassion for those less fortunate or those who have been wronged is evident.

His presence on the Breakfast Show has made big names a regular feature on CapeTalk. Kieno has interviewed CEOs, Ministers, industry leaders and trend-setters. Some of his interviews have resulted in changes in policy.

A focus on MediClinic, for example, resulted in the group of hospitals changing the way they do triage.

His interview with a mother who couldn’t afford the tuition fees of Stellenbosch University for her daughter who achieved seven distinctions, resulted in listeners pledging enough funds for her first year.
