The National Department of Arts & Culture (DAC) in the partnership with State-Owned Entities Communicators Association (SOECA) will host the final colloquium in celebration of Africa month focusing on the imaging of Africa and the forging of intra- African solidarity for Africa's people. The theme of solidarity has been part of many conversations this Africa month – why is Africa divided; what are the effects of such divisions; has Pan Africanism failed?

The View Point 29 May 2019

The Constitution of the Republic stipulates that the President must assume office within five days of being elected by the National Assembly – and thereafter appoint a Cabinet and assign its powers and functions. President Ramaphosa has announced his new cabinet – what do you make of it? Are you happy with it? Was it enough to cut the departments from 36 to 28 or could he have made more cuts? What do you make of the number of deputy ministers? What do you make of some of the names that did not make it to the list?

The View Point 29 May 2019 Child Protection Week 2019

Children need families and communities who have courage to take steps to protect them and address all forms of violations of their rights. We also need to familiarise ourselves with Children’s rights covered in Chapter 2, Section 28 (1 d & e) of the Constitution of South Africa of 1996 which states that every child has the right to be protected from maltreatment, neglect, abuse or degradation. But do we need the constitution to tell us, as adults, that we must protect our children? Do we need the constitution before we can see that a child is in pain? Why are we not protecting our children? Why are governments not prioritizing the needs of children and youth? Is our conviction rate of cases pertaining to child abuse satisfactory?
SONGEZO MABECE was in conversation with Ms Neliswa Cekiso - Head of Child Protection at the Department of Social Development AND Ms Sipelile Kaseke – Head of Programme Development at the SOS Children’s Village

The View Point 28 May 2019 #Understanding the X.Y.Z of insurance

Short-term insurance is something that many people buy and know just the A.B.Cs of (i.e. we need insurance to protect ourselves; if we don’t pay a premium it’ll affect the claim; insurance premiums go up every 18 to 24 months). But how often do we ask “Is this insurance right for me” or “Am I underinsured”? How much do we understand about insurance? Are we paying too much or too little for our insurance?
Songezo Mabece was in conversation with Sekgobola Thobakgale, an insurance specialist with Redefine

The View Point 28 May 2019. The Socio-Economic impact of Remand Detention in Western Cape

The Africa Criminal Justice Reform’s (ACJR) released a report titled “Liberty not the only loss: the socio-economic impact of remand detention in the Western Cape” – it investigates the socio-economic impact of remand detention at Pollsmoor Remand and Pollsmoor Female prisons in the Western Cape. The report focusses on accused persons held in remand and the impact on their families and dependents. The results show that “the detention on remand of detainees has a measurable impact on the families and households of detainees, reducing incomes, depleting savings, often plunging families into debt, impacting on children, and forcing the sale of assets.”
Songezo Mabece was in conversation with Ms Jean Redpath, she is a researcher at the Dullah Omar Institute at the University of the Western Cape and Clare Ballard, she is the head of the Prisoners' Rights Litigation Programme at Lawyers for Human Rights.
