Advice Assembly

3 EPISODES | NDIFUNA UKWAZI |  Podcast, ±25 min episode every 4 days
An Advice Assembly is usually a weekly meeting of tenants, occupiers, and activists hosted by Reclaim the City and Ndifuna Ukwazi. It is a space to learn about eviction processes and law, and stand in solidarity to prevent and resist unlawful evictions and unfair landlord practices. In the context of the pandemic and lockdown measures which limited public gatherings, we realised that this space was and is still needed. Social solidarity and sharing of knowledge are essential now.

It is in this regard that we collaborated with Radio 786 as an established and trusted source of information for the community to provide both educational and practical legal advice on various tenant-landlord scenarios as well as information sessions on issues pertaining to land justice in Cape Town.

Filling the Gapp

2 EPISODES | T2S2 |  Podcast, ±59 min episode every 3 weeks
Filling the Gapp is a podcast about the important topics in South Africa that goes beyond the usual discussions of government simply in terms of corruption and incompetence.
Of course, they are. But we aim to go deeper than that.
What are the deeper underlying reasons informing South Africa's ruling ANC?
How does the historical background of the ANC elders inform their strange decisions to ban the sources of sin tax, cigarettes and alcohol?
How did the good intentions of anti-Apartheid activists turn into dysfunctional local governments across the country?
Dr Ivor Chipkin hosts this deep dive into the reasons that South Africa's government has evolved into what it is today – and potentially how to rebuild it.
Chipkin is the founder of the Public Affairs Research Institute (PARI) at Wits University, and today runs South Africa’s first global think tank on government, GAPP.
He was the key author of Betrayal of the Promise Report on State Capture, a seminal 2017 expose of corruption and the anti-constitutional rule of the Jacob Zuma administration.
He has a Phd from Ecole Normale Superieure, France, was an Oppenheimer Fellow at Oxford, and is author of two books. He is one of the leading scholars on government; thinking about government; and thinking about government policy.
