Lester Kiewit

Lester Kiewit has been plying his trade as a broadcast journalist for close on a decade. He got his big break in as a news intern at CapeTalk Eyewitness News in 2004 soon developing into a seasoned and respected journalist.

He then joined the wild world of television in 2008 as part of the etv and eNCA news teams. Most recently he led the channel's Parliamentary coverage. He has forged a reputation as a tough, brave reporter, with a well-developed story-telling sense.

Born and raised in Cape Town, Lester takes great pleasure in exploring his hometown, walking through the CBD, and historic districts, visiting and researching historic buildings and learning more about the city's indigenous history.
