Kathy Malherbe

Kathy Malherbe graduated from the University of Stellenbosch with English as her major. She has been a freelance writer for 22 years specialising in investigative medical features, travel and motoring/lifestyle features. She has been regular contributor to Private Edition since its inception five years ago and her investigative medical feature on the history of apartheid in medicine was a finalist in the Discovery Health Investigative Journalism Awards. Her love of adrenalin rush extends into some of the controversial topics she covers, her love of getting away from it all (on or off road) on a motorbike (preferably a BMW) and a passion for skiing fast. When she writes she tries to leave out the words that people skip.
