Who is Arthur Fraser? Justice Malala fires things up on the Burning Platform brought to you by Nando’s, by explaining how the state is still captured, as shady individuals still pull the strings behind the scenes. ‘Oros’ Maine has a moment of conscience around being introduced to the Guptas, the state of politics after Winnie Mandela’s passing, and Julius Malema’s PR mess in Port Elizabeth.
South Africa’s inequalities are well known, and sadly getting continually worse. Justice Malala delves into this sobering subject in this week’s Burning Platform brought to you by Nando’s. Thabo Mbeki is taking some heat this week around Winnie Mandela’s passing. Malusi Gigaba’s lies, Julius Malema’s P.E. problems and Jacob Zuma’s day in court. So much to sink your ears into here.
Justice Malala has had a busy time of late, from arguing with Julius Malema to keeping a close look at the latest developments around the EFF trying to oust Athol Trollip. Political parties are looking to become more transparent around their funders, the ANC and the chances of an early election, Vicki Momberg’s hate speech sentencing, and the extravagance/arrogance of Ace Magashule.

Is SARS finally getting their house in order? Justice Malala gets things cooking with this hot topic in the latest edition of the Burning Platform, brought to you by Nando’s. He doesn’t stop there though. He goes deep into the Life Esidimeni story, what is happening with the land issue, and the EFF and their endless ramblings and double standards.
Tackling hot, political topics head-on… Justice discusses SASSA going to the Constitutional Court again and trying to blackmail the judges while extending an illegal contract. He, of course, also has to comment on Bathabile Dlamini and President Ramaphosa. What does he have to say on the big land question? What’s the connection between a Kota, polony, a hospital in Ugu, cancer treatment, the North West and the Minister of Health? Has anyone thought about Nhlanhla Nene and what he has to do? Get the answers to these here too. Brought to you by Nando’s.
Ivo Vegter steps in for Justice Malala this week on the Burning Platform brought to you by Nando’s. He starts off hot in describing how everyone’s new political darling Cyril Ramaphosa is essentially a hypocritical socialist. Ivo expands on this giving you a very different perspective on SA’s new president, with some insights that are certainly not going to be popular.
There is an air of positivity suddenly breezing across South Africa right now. Good things for the South African people, bad things for the Zuma loyalists. Justice Malala puts this all into perspective for you with the Burning Platform brought to you by Nando’s. You really don’t need to go anywhere else right now when it comes to your political news and the real state of the nation.
Could this be the week of a President’s Zuma’s exit? Justice looks into this while advising we should stop applying logic when it comes to Citizen Number One. As “Motion of No Confidence” becomes the buzzword currently being thrown around, Justice also thinks protesting might be the next step. And looking at Faith Muthambi’s comings and goings, we could all learn to dust ourselves off and be connected to the right people. Brought to you by Nando’s.
A trusty source, in the form of Julius Malema, says that President Zuma will not resign before the State of the Nation Address. Justice looks at that, along with the scenario around every day President Zuma stays in power, Cyril Ramaphosa is depicted as weaker. So what does he have to do to demonstrate his power? Meanwhile, President Zuma oddly has the backing of the National Funeral Practitioners Association of SA. Justice then takes the team through the latest in Mayor Patricia de Lille and the DA’s shenanigans. Brought to you by Nando’s.
The winds of change are really sweeping through as Cyril Ramaphosa starts to clean up Zuma’s messes. On a Monday for now, Justice Malala’s Burning Platform brought to you by Nando’s gets your week fired up with everything you need to know in SA politics. It’s a battle to be on the right side of things, but Zuma’s cronies are all finding that hard to do right now.
