Roger Webster
Roger Webster is a well-known voice to South African audiences. He has been broadcasting his “Fireside Chats” on SAFM for the past 15 years. 

Roger’s historical and anecdotal tales, based on the true history of South Africa, and not what we were taught in school, have made him a controversial and sought after speaker on the South African circuit.  His talks range from ancient aboriginal tales and the many slants on the history of South Africa prior to Jan van Riebeck to modern day issues, including land claims and land distribution and the renaming of streets.
Roger Webster is an extraordinary raconteur and has addressed various Chambers of Commerce, Chambers of Mines and numerous conferences for many blue chip companies and private functions for celebrities, such as Oprah Winfrey, Morgan Freeman, Tina Turner, et al.

While Roger is predominantly a South African historian, his bent lies in the telling of stories, not so much of the factual dates and information, but rather placing an emphasis on the deeds performed by the people that have made our country what it is today. He believes that many heroic deeds, by both black and white South Africans, have been forgotten or, for political reasons, have been brushed under the carpet. Roger has an uncanny nose for stories and travels South Africa’s cities, towns and dorps researching, developing and fleshing out the tales that make a nation remember who it is and where it came from. 
With the onset of land reform, Roger covers many aspects of what actually happened in bygone times, which perhaps have coloured our present perceptions and he pulls no punches.

Roger is the author of five bestselling books based on his “Fireside Chats”.  These are Fireside Chats volumes 1 - 4 and the Illustrated Fireside Chats. He also co-authored a book called “Innocent Blood”, which deals with the British execution of the 42 so-called Cape rebels during the Anglo-Boer war of 1899 to 1902.
Roger was the runner up for the CNA/bestseller award for 2002.
