Recent cases include the gang rape of eight women in Krugersdorp, which has been blamed on illegal foreign miners, and Eswatini spokesperson Alpheous Nxumalo's comment that “SA is infested with a cancer of criminality from head to toe”.
Clayson Monyela, deputy director-general for public diplomacy, said Nxumalo had insulted South Africans.
Monyela joins host Mike Siluma to discuss these issues. He comments on SA's stance on the Russia-Ukraine war, its role in Brics and the AU and more, saying despite challenges confronting the country, SA is still sought after in terms of providing leadership, not just on the African continent but globally.
