Who is Riaan Cruywagen?
“While my public image is that of a serious TV news presenter, all collared and tied, I am a fun-loving family man who enjoys spending time with my relatives and friends. I am particularly happy when my only grandchild, a boy of almost 3 years, is around to share in the fun. Although I’ve been to many exotic places all over the world, nothing beats an African sunset in our own South African bushveld with the aroma of chops, wors and sosaties sizzling on some leadwood coals and the cry of a fish-eagle in the background.”
Why does Riaan Cruywagen support Braai4Heritage?
“To braai is the common denominator of all South Africans. It offers us the unique opportunity to spend quality time with family and friends, and to befriend neighbours and strangers regardless of their political convictions. A braai knows no cultural barriers and brings people together in a cordial, relaxed atmosphere. Because I know of no other country with a custom so pleasant and heart-warming as a traditional South African braai, Braai Day is an ideal occasion to make friends of strangers while celebrating our national heritage.”
