South African politics is anything but boring. From Julius Malema and his Economic Freedom Fighters calling for the president to “Pay Back The Money” to the jamming of the cellphone signal in Parliament, our politics unfold as if every day is an episode of House of Cards. For many, SA politics are scary. For others, they are the thrilling growing pains of a new democracy. What should you make of them?
Justice Malala – renowned political commentator, newspaper columnist and TV host – joins The Gareth Cliff Show every Thursday at 7AM for The Burning Platform. Both Justice and Gareth are well known for their straight, uncompromising views and they tackle the big stories of the week, dissect what the big trends in politics are and point you to what the future holds for South Africa and the continent.
Malala brings his expert but light and humorous touch to give you insight into SA politics. Who succeeds President Zuma? What is the future of land policy? Who are the people to watch? Political Faux Pas of the Week? These and many other questions are answered in Malala’s inimitable humorous style as the week’s stories are analysed.
Justice Malala writes regular weekly columns for The Times newspaper and the Financial Mail magazine, and is a resident political commentator for the eNews Channel Africa (eNCA). He also presents a weekly political talk show (The Justice Factor on eNCA).
