Siphiwo Nkonki


Siphiwo Nkonki holds a Diploma and BTech in Journalism from the Cape Peninsula University of Technology. Originally from the Eastern Cape, he now lives in Harare, Khayelitsha. Before joining Cape Town TV in 2014, Siphiwo was with Media24, the Stellenbosch Municipality, as well as The Herald newspaper in Port Elizabeth.

He’s a multi-skilled member of the team and often stands in as technical director, VT operator, or graphics operator when needed in the control room.

Siphiwo says, “I wrote my BTech paper focusing mainly on community media, so joining Our City was an easy decision for me given my studies. Outside of work, I am a devoted father to a baby girl and an aspiring poultry farmer so I spend a lot of my free time tending to my chickens.”
