Lesley Musina replaces Dingaan Mokebe as the new presenter of the 9th season of Speak Out on SABC2's consumer rights show.


Lesley Musina is taking over as the presenter of the new season of Speak Out on SABC2, replacing Muvhango's Dingaan Mokebe who no longer wants to be involved with the consumer rights current affairs show, following a public and awkward falling out with the production company Aviwe Business Development Services.

The new 9th season of Speak Out is scheduled to start on SABC2 on Thursday, 6 October at 21:30.

Lesley Musina replaces Dingaan Mokebe who was the presenter for 4 seasons, but SABC2 isn't commenting about any of it.

According to Speak Out the new season will "investigate and expose issues that most South African consumers struggle with". "This season aims to educate and empower our complainants, consumers, businesses and viewers in terms of consumer rights".

"The realization of how important it has been meeting people who have been taken for a ride by big business has been humbling," says Lesley Musina who can speak English, Tshivenda, Sepedi, Setswana, Sesotho, Isizulu, Xitsonga and Afrikaans.

"Being their voice and ensuring that we fight for what belongs to them only brings comfort in one’s space. There is nowhere to hide when Speak Out is around".

"Shooting Speak Out has has been a great experience. The realization of how important it has been meeting people who have been taken for a ride by big business has been humbling. Being their voice and ensuring that we fight for what belongs to them only brings comfort in one's space."

"This shows that programmes like Speak Out is exactly what the doctor ordered for the consumer. There is nowhere to hide when Speak Out is around," says Lesley Musina.
