On Sunday I was invited to chat about the Sunday newspapers with Jeremy Maggs on Power FM.
Maggs, is a veteran journalist and has been working in broadcast for thirty years. It was a fun experience having a mostly relaxed and chilled conversation about my book Diary of a Guji Girl and then the top stories in the Sunday newspapers.
The conversation started about my debut novel and went on to publishing and, believe it or not, some marketing too.
The Sunday Times led with President Jacob Zuma’s former spokesperson saying he told Zuma when the Nkandla debacle began to #PayBackTheMoney but the President told him no. It is quite fascinating.
City Press had a story about consultants who, yet again, screwed over the state- this time delivering broken toilets for millions of rands. But on their inside pages there was a fascinating article about the South African Airways board chairperson Dudu Myeni who charges for face time with Zuma. How’s that for crafty entrepreneurship… or….
The Sunday Independent had a story about the embattled national police commissioner who is facing some revolt within her ranks. All in all it doesn’t look pretty for Aunty Riah Phiyega.
