Constitution Under Fire

Season 5 Episode 41

Thu, 22 Jan 2015 10:00pm

“Corruption started the day after van Riebeeck arrived, and Cecil Rhodes only carried it further. So we have a whole legacy of corruption, in the white era as well as the post-Apartheid era”

“….the ordinary person can engage in a political forum, and for me that’s what we are lacking; the active citizen in our democracy”

Corruption, The Constitution of South Africa, the Secrecy Bill and accountability within Government; just a few of the topics of conversation our participants touched on in Constitution Under Fire. Featuring Cape Talk’s Africa Melane and anti-arms deal campaigner, Terry Crawford-Browne.
