LISTEN: We talk Nonhle Thema, Mugabe’s children, JMPD and Bonang’s new app

In episode two of Citizen Cast, we discuss the news that does not affect the rand. From Nonhle Thema to JMPD, and Mercedes-Benz to Robert Mugabe Junior. Have a listen.

In the past month, the news has been mildly entertaining. Citizen Cast, a podcast hosted by members of the Citizen’s digital team, discusses the news that doesn’t affect the rand. If you’re in need of some company – or just want to catch up on entertaining South African news – have a listen.

You can listen to the full podcast here:



Here’s a rundown of what we discussed, if you’d prefer to read the stories. But we’d prefer you have a listen.

The City of Joburg launched their Urban Diabetes campaign, and Twitter had a field day. Here‘s the full story.

A local boxer broke down and abruptly quit because of favouritism. You can watch the video here.

Twitter went way back and mercilessly dragged Nonhle Thema. Remember her tweets about poor South Africans? Twitter never forgets. Read the full story here.

Jacques Cilliers, part of the Citizen’s editorial team, wrote a three part feature after discovering Robert Mugabe Junior (as in the President of Zimbabwe’s son) has a public Facebook account. Part 1 discusses who the Mugabe children are. Part 2 delves deep into Rob Junior’s status as a Braam Lord. Part 3 looks into what’s next for the royal children.

Look out for Episode three.
