Yusuf Abramjee is the Head of News and Current Affairs at Primedia Broadcasting and is also the Head of Communications for the Primedia Group.
Yusuf is a born newshound, a pillar of his community, an activist and a leader that never rests in his pursuit of the truth and making a difference for South Africa and its people.
This is evident from his role as a Lead SA activist and his work at the helm of Crime Line, an anonymous crime tip-off service that is credited with thousands of arrests and the recovery of millions of rands in stolen goods.
His contribution to community service was recognised during the 2013 National Orders when President Jazob Zuma bestowed on him the Order of the Baobab, silver.
He was recently appointed the Second Vice President of Crime Stoppers International (CSI) and he also serves as the chairman of the South African Federation Against Copyright Theft (SAFACT).
