The history of South Africa’s freedom fighters are well known. The stories of the remarkable women who played an important role in the struggle against apartheid however, sadly often remain untold. eNCA has finally given some of these incredible women a voice, and Gareth chats to the team behind it all – Michelle Craig (eNCA anchor), Mmanaledi Mataboge-Mashetla (Senior Researcher), and Helene Nieuwenhuis (Senior Producer for Special Projects).
14.08.19 Pt 2 – Is the SA woman crying during the Hong Kong protests annoying or justified? Imagine being a talented artist… but only in your sleep. Have you ever had a situation where you’ve had the urge to get intimate with someone in a public space? Well Germany may have found a solution. This year, eNCA has decided to pay tribute to some of the incredible women who have fought for the freedom we all share today – in a series of stories about struggle, perseverance and survival.
14.08.19 Pt 1 – The studio is buzzing as always… plus we have Damon Kalvari and his eccentric self in the house. He tells us about the not so great woman in his life – his mother. ‘Nice guys are losers’, but is that the case with our president Cyril Ramaphosa? And what’s the right thing to do when receiving an out of town wedding invitation?
13.08.19 Pt 2 – On the back of the recent Miss SA crowning, the team discuss whether there’s still any value in this title. Actress and writer Heather Massie is in studio. She studied Astrophysics with dreams of becoming an astronaut, before studying Theatre Arts in the Virginia Tech School of the Arts, and becoming a professional actress.
13.08.19 Pt 1 – Do you think you would be capable of killing? And under what circumstances? Well there are 4 kinds of killers and we unpack them. With the NHI bill seeming imminent, could this the beginning of the end for all South Africans? Gareth has an interesting take on things…
12.08.19 Pt 2 – If you’ve ever wondered what being on suicide watch in prison feels like, Leigh-Ann tells a gripping story that gives the team something to think about.
With all the mismatching of sperm and eggs at IVF clinics, what would you do if you found out that your father wasn’t actually your father? Considered one of the world’s leading authorities on human behaviour and personal development, Dr John Demartini is the perfect person to chat to, to get you in the perfect gear for the rest of the week!
12.08.19 Pt 1 – When was the last time you got that grimy couch cleaned? If you knew what we know, you may want to get it checked out. We’ve all heard stories about heaven and hell, but how good and bad can it be? Well Gareth seems to have a pretty good idea of what the afterlife looks like, and reckons there won’t be too many familiar faces for him in heaven. Then, much to our surprise we meet Siya the serial stalker…
Helen Zille may have stepped down as the Premier of the Western Cape after two five-year terms and retired from politics, but she is nowhere close to slowing down. She’s still right in the thick of continuing to make and get involved in societal change for the better. She chats to Gareth about her new position at the South African Institute of Race Relations (IRR) as a senior policy fellow, and how she’s navigating these tricky times we’re in. No topic is left untouched, from victimhood culture, why she reckons ‘wokeness’ is about white people, Twitter, who she stills keeps up with at the Democratic Alliance (DA), and why she believes the most dangerous people in society are the ones who think they’ve found the truth.
08.08.19 Pt 2 – India may be a third world nation, but Gareth believes with certainty that it’s a sleeping giant and a force to look out for. The team then discuss the issue on party funding in SA politics and whether it should be permitted.
08.08.19 Pt 1 – As December approaches, have you made holiday reservations and booked your flights? Depending on who you ask, it may be too late. When was the last time you were involved in a physical fight, and is it really worth it? Gugu has an interesting theory on this. The conversation continues on the issue of police cracking down on foreign-owned shops selling counterfeit goods in the Joburg CBD. But who’s to blame… the buyer or the seller?
