Amina Frense, the SABC's managing editor of television news and current affairs, marries South Africa's former spy boss Ronnie Kasrils.

Readers of TV with Thinus will be aware that television and South Africa's TV industry is covered intelligently, incisively here and not in the TV trash way some other publications pander with passes for news (get press release; publish and regurgitate press release with no original thought).

That includes not doing stories about people's personal lives and dishing personal dirt (and there's oh so much) - unless it impacts directly on their professional work life.

One piece of personal news to share though, is the wedding today of Amina Frense (59), the SABC's managing editor for television news and current affairs.

Amina Frense married Ronnie Kasrils today, South Africa's former minister of intelligence services, in an intimate wedding ceremony in Cape Town.
