Veteran journalist Mike Siluma will broadcast his last show on Kaya 959 on Thursday, 3rd September 2020. Karibu, which Siluma fronted for six years, has grown to be an instrumental platform for some of the most complex issues facing Africans in South Africa and the continent today.
On his show, which formed part of Kaya 959’s speciality offering — Siluma brought together notable historians, academics and compelling thinkers to engage him on a range of historical subjects with a focus on art, literature and music.
Over the years Karibu has helped propel the station’s objectives of reaching a wider audience across the continent and in the diaspora. The station appreciates his efforts and contributions in upholding Kaya 959’s Afropolitan values.
“It has been a privilege to have hosted a show such as Karibu, which created space for us as Africans to have frank and in-depth conversations about issues that affect our continent, as well as current and future generations of Africans. I hope Kaya 959 grows from strength to strength,” said Siluma.
“We are proud of the progress and success that Mike, a true Afropolitan, has achieved within Karibu on the station. We are sad to see him go but we wish him well for the future,” said Linda Reddy, Kaya 959’s acting MD.
The station will announce a new host for the Thursday, 20h00-23h00 slot soon.
