Learn More about Peter Bayer


Peter Bayer is well known as one of the best journalists who worked during the Apartheid era. He worked for the famous “Rand Daily Mail” and before that at “The World” (an apparent “Black” newspaper). Not only that, he was a magazine writer and photojournalist.

After the Daily Mail closed in 1985, he published educational newspapers for southern Africans living in rural areas. Recently, he has shifted to a more academic career, writing and lecturing on many different journalism and communications degree modules.

He currently lives in Johannesburg with his wife.
