THE BIG DEBATE BURSTS BACK - WITH REDI TLHABI

South Africa's Debora Patta in Nigeria, doing great reporting for CBS News on abducted Nigerian school girls.


South Africa's Debora Patta is in Nigeria and has been reporting extensively for CBS News from there since last week.

Debora Patta has been doing exceptionally great reporting, seen on the CBS Evenings News with Scott Pelley shown on Sky News (DStv 402) as well as for other CBS shows (not seen in South Africa).

The multi-tasker who's been reporting and covering the sensational Oscar Pistorius trial the past two months, jetted to Abuja, Nigeria last week and is still there, doing live links and filing several stories used as the lead-in stories on the CBS Evening News.


It's remarkable and noteworthy when an American TV news bulletin goes to an African story like the school girls kidnapped by the terrorist group Boko Haram as its lead story - and even more so when its done by an African correspondent from the Africa continent like what Debora Patta is doing for CBS.
