Anneliese Burgess

Anneliese Burgess is an award-winning investigative journalist who has spent more than 20 years reporting for radio and television. Starting out as a specialist producer for the SABC’s Truth Commission Special Report, she later became a founding member of the broadcaster’s flagship current-affairs show, Special Assignment. After 12 years at the programme – first as a producer and later as co-executive producer and anchor, she reinvented herself as a leading crisis communication specialist, handling, among other cases, the Oscar Pistorius trial on behalf of the athlete’s family.

Her book Heist!, published earlier this year, sees her returning to her journalism roots to investigate the spate of cash-in-transit heists in South Africa
