Following the backlash that the boys got last week on social media, accusing men of overtaking the conversation while also arguing that it’s not women’s jobs to educate men, men must talk to men – this week Andrew and Rori do a ‘brothers in conversation’ show about #menaretrash. They share thoughts and views as men about #menaretrash and how men can begin to move forward along the progressive path of gender equality. This is not as a lecture session but a heart to heart between gents, joined by Mbuyiselo Botha of Sonke Gender Justice, gender activist Khomotso Ntuli, and Katleho Mogase, who has been hosting dialogues on #menaretrash.

She’s accused of having been “a disappointing failure although she was praised for the managerial improvements she made”. Now an influential faction of the ANC wants to position her to take over from Jacob Zuma as president of the party – and ultimately of the country should the ANC win the 2019 national election. Andrew and Rori speak to journalists Simon Allison, Africa Editor of Mail&Guardian; and Richard Poplak, senior contributor at Daily Maverick.

And inversely, if so many women are being raped then is there a proportionately large number of men that are perpetrating rape? In this hard-hitting discussion Andrew and Rori speak to Huffington Post SA Engagement Director, Shandukani Mulaudzi, Mara Glennie of TEARS, and Dr Benita Moolman of HSRC.

On the one hand, President Zuma and his government made up of Dlamini, Mahlobo, Zwane, etc. is a democratically elected government that represents the will of the people. On the other hand, these very politicians are leading from crisis to crisis with no sense of accountability. Even the so-called Chapter 9 institutions seem powerless. Andrew and Rori explore the sense of powerlessness they feel as citizens and ask Nomaceba Mbayo from Right2Know and Rafael Friedman from the Helen Suzman Foundation what citizens can do to claim their power back.
