Car buff, others take a ride on this week’s CNN African Voices




Car buffs from three African countries will hitch a ride on this week’s edition of African Voices, a 30-minute programme on CNN.

The car enthusiasts who have excelled in uncommon arts such as spinning, racing and collection of antique wheels will be special guests on the programme, which is sponsored by Globacom. The three are South African Stacey Lee May, Amirah Alladeen of Mauritius, and Fred Apaloo of Ghana.

Through her amazing stunts, Stacey Lee May has established a reputation for herself in South Africa and beyond. Viewers will learn how she was trained in the art by her father, a truck driver, with her mother providing support.

From Ghana, Apaloo is the typical car enthusiast. He has revived antique wheels with his collection of at least 20 cars ranging from British to German.

The third guest on the programme, Amirah, got her passion for car rally from her father, Rayhan Alladeen, with whom she has created a record as the fastest overall racer during the last stage of the Mauritius National Rally Championship in 2018.
