Claire Mawisa is back on our television screens as an investigative journalist for Carte Blanche.

Former model and SABC 1 continuity presenter Claire Mawisa has been named as the new presenter for M-Net's actuality and news programme, Carte Blanche.

Mawisa, who been in the media industry for nearly two decades and now owns her own business, has joined South Africa's longest running investigative journalism programme which will air her first insert this Sunday (April 12).

The gorgeous entrepreneur's first venture into investigative journalism territory will be a revealing piece about a heritage site in Mpumalanga that has supporting evidence of human settlement that took place before colonialism.

A press statement released by MNet reveals how excited  head of MNet's Publicity, Lani Lombard is about Mawisa's addition to the Carte Blance family.

"Claire will be a great asset to the Carte Blanche team" Lombard says.

"She has an incredible rapport with young and old and we're thrilled to add a new member to the team that will also draw a younger audience to our flagship programme."

35-year-old Mawisa is honoured by the opportunity.

“There is no show like it on TV”, says Mawisa.

“I have grown up watching Carte Blanche, and it has always had a very high standard when it comes to telling the South African story in an honest and fearless way.  To say that I'm excited to join the team is an understatement," she reveals on the statement. Mawisa's colleague Bongani Bingwa could also not hold back his exctiment. His tweet revealed the big news to the world.    

We're excited to see Claire back on our TV screen and can't wait to see how her first piece for the historic brand fairs.
