- President Cyril Ramaphosa's economic recovery plans come under the spotlight as News24's political hacks talk politics in this brand new weekly podcast series.
- But is it a case of old strategies retreaded or is there hope for our economic future?
- The corruption pandemic, also a top talking point, continues to plague the country but there may be an end in sight as the ANC turns to lawyers to establish whether those implicated can be forced to step aside.
In this inaugural episode of Politics Unmuted, a weekly podcast by News24, we focus on the government's plans for economic recovery and the corruption pandemic that continues to plague the country.
News24 political editor, Qaanitah Hunter, host of Politics Unmuted, talks to assistant editor for in-depth news, Pieter du Toit, and political reporter, Lizeka Tandwa. They delve into the rollercoaster of South African politics, with insight and humour, examining topics dominating the current political landscape.
This week, President Cyril Ramaphosa's plans for economic recovery are in the spotlight. Are they just retreaded strategies? Or will we see some much-needed implementation?
Tandwa, Du Toit and Hunter grapple with these questions.
The corruption pandemic in SA is also brought into sharp focus as the three political hacks dissect its impact and the government's promises to end it. Du Toit believes the Hawks "have awoken from their slumber" and there is hope that perpetrators will face jail time.
But, as all three agree, nothing shocks South Africans anymore and until Ramaphosa solves at least one major problem facing the country, citizens will no longer trust the governing party or its policies.
Politics Unmuted, where our microphones are never muted and we turn up the volume on all things political.
New episodes to be released every Friday.
