Or listen on:

In South Africa the race is on to find a government of national unity. Parliament must sit by June 16 to elect a new president. Will the ANC appease the markets and investors by joining with the DA and risk widening the rifts in its ranks? Or will it take the ‘Chernobyl option’ of joining with the leftists of Malema’s EFF and former president Zuma’s MK party?
We get the views of lawyer, businessman and author Oyama Mbandla whose new book ‘The Soul of a Nation’ reflects on where the ANC has gone wrong and proposes a new season of national dialogue.
The Soul of a Nationa by Oyama Mbandla, published by Tafelberg.

Waleed Madibo, Sudanese Governance and International Development expert, founder and President of Sudan Policy Forum outlines the contours of his country’s civil war. After more than a year of fighting, almost 3 million people in the west are at risk of being shelled or of starving to death. The battle for El Fasher could determine the outcome of this brutal war that is ravaging Sudan.

Patrick explains why a slew of African leaders have been feted in Seoul and a handful are invited to Georgia Meloni’s G7 party in Italy.

Why is the TV provider, Multi Choice Nigeria being rapped over the knuckles for increasing its charges? It’s been fined $100 million and told to give all its customers a free month….just in time for a big, international football tournament. Is that a coincidence? A question for economist Kelvin Emmanuel.
