Sam Sole presenting the keynote address

One of South Africa’s most famous investigative journalists, Sam Sole, has just delivered one of the most riveting keynote addresses at Highway Africa in recent years. Sole, who started work in 1986, and is the co-founder of amaBhungane, an investigative journalism unit, was speaking as part of the 21st Highway Africa conference in Grahamstown. The 31 August- 1 September meeting of journalists, activists and policy makers, has been held this year in conjunction with SACOMM (the South African Communication Association), which is also holding its annual (and parallel) conference in Grahamstown.
