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.

KZN African National Congress

0 EPISODES | OUTSIDE BROADCASTING FACILITIES |  Podcast
The African National Congress (ANC) is the Republic of South Africa's governing political party. It has been the ruling party of post-apartheid South Africa since the election of Nelson Mandela in the 1994 election, winning every election since then. Cyril Ramaphosa, the incumbent President of South Africa, has served as leader of the ANC since 18 December 2017.[4]

Founded on 8 January 1912 by John Langalibalele Dube in Bloemfontein as the South African Native National Congress (SANNC), its primary mission was to bring all Africans together as one people, to defend their rights and freedoms. This included giving full voting rights to black South Africans and mixed-race South Africans and, from 1948 onwards, to end the system of apartheid introduced by the Nationalist Party government after their election (by White voters only) in that year.[5]

The ANC originally attempted to use non-violent protests to end apartheid; however, the Sharpeville massacre in March 1960, in which 69 black Africans were shot and killed by police and hundreds wounded during a peaceful protest, contributed to deteriorating relations with the South African government. On 8 April 1960, the administration of Charles Robberts Swart banned the ANC in South Africa.[6] After the ban, the ANC formed the Umkhonto we Sizwe (Spear of the Nation) to fight against apartheid utilising guerrilla warfare and sabotage.
