Sibusisiwe “Sebe” Buthelezi

I joined Roving Reporters because I’d always been fascinated by their investigations, and hoped to one day be a part of them. Sebe did indeed become part of our team.

I was a first year Durban University of Technology (DUT) student when Fred Kockott first made his Roving Reporters presentation. A friend of mine and I were interested, but we were scared to join because we were still very intimidated by the second year students. Two years later I found myself thinking of that presentation again. That is when I decided to send my application to Roving Reporters. A few weeks later, I attended another presentation that Fred held at DUT. I almost had a heart attack when he displayed my application letter on the screen. I was relieved when he said that it was excellent.

Following her six month work-integrated learning internship with Roving Reporters, Sebe graduated with a Diploma in Journalism in 2014.
