The government has had the military stationed on the streets of Cape Town in an attempt to curb the violence, but not everyone agrees with this method. We unpack this polarising topic layer by layer. We’re facing many issues as a country, but how can we fix the social fabric of our nation, and should we be depending on the state to take care of things?

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.
