“I am deeply honoured to be a part of Louis Norval’s vision to create a proud nation that celebrates its culture and diversity in a manner that embraces all facets of who we are – and in a manner that encourages nation building and positive diversity,” says Bouwer.
Carol Bouwer is a legendary South African television presenter, producer and production company owner best known for hosting – and later producing – the SABC talk show Motswako: The Mix.
