Cape Town TV at the SAFTAs

Cape Town TV producer wins a SAFTA

This year Cape Town joined the glitz and glamour of the South African Film and Television Awards (SAFTAs). The awards ceremony took place at Sun City on the 30th September. And Cape Town TV was there in the midst of it all.

Two of our shows were nominated for a SAFTA, making us extremely proud. Jabaar Mohammed, producer of the show Accessibility with Jabaar was nominated for The Outstanding Person with Disability Contributor Award and our youth show, EKSÊ, was nominated for Best Youth Programme.

Accessibility with Jabaar is a long-running talk show on Cape Town TV that addresses issues affecting the disabled community. Jabaar is the current Provincial Head of DeafSA and he has the expertise to engage with the differently-abled community and challenge the misunderstandings which affect this population sector.

Jabaar brought home the Outstanding Person with Disability Contributor Award. We are so proud of him! The award is well-deserved.
