President Cyril Ramaphosa of South Africa opens a brand new Covid vaccine plant in Cape Town, which could be a game-changer in the fight against the pandemic. Meanwhile, Cameroon's plan to get people vaccinated using their love of football isn't going too well. Also: an MP from Somaliland argues against independence from Somalia. And the Ghanaian artist, activist and humanitarian, Rocky Dawuni and his latest album Voice Of Bunbon.
South Africa's President Ramaphosa has opened a vaccine manufacturing site in Cape Town. The BBC's Vumani Mkhize was at the event, and brings us the details. And we get reaction to the development from Thomas Cueni, director general of the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers and Associations in Basel. Also in the programme, the vice president of the European Securities and Markets Authority has called for a ban in the European Union on mining of the cryptocurrency Bitcoin, on environmental grounds. Erik Thedeen explains his thinking. Rising food and fuel prices are making daily life tougher for the people of Sri Lanka, and the BBC's Anbarasan Ethirajan reports on the difficulties people in the country face. Plus, less than 10 per cent of trade involving members of the East Africa economic bloc the EAC is currently delivered by rail. Tanzania and Burundi hope to change that and are planning a new rail connection between the two countries. We hear what the countries hope to achieve with the proposal from Nuzulack Dausen, executive editor of the NuktaAfrica news agency in Dar es Salaam.
Lisa Dion's next special guest is a Certified SPT therapist, coach, mom and Yoga instructor. She's known her for years - all the way back to when Lauren worked in Cape Town, South Africa. Listen as Lauren Porter and Lisa talk about how to make Yoga a practice that can support you as a therapist and redefine and unpack yoga in a way that maybe you haven't considered… ...And how getting to know yourself more and experiencing a widening of your window of tolerance for your emotional states can help your practice as a therapist tenfold. Whether you're experienced in yoga or not, deepen your understanding of the possibility of how yoga can support you in being with your clients in more embodied ways. You'll discover: What yoga is really about (hint: it's not to help you feel better) How yoga gives understanding to both the conceptual world and the embodied YOU How to overcome the mental, emotional and physical blocks that prevent you (and all of us) from having a lived experience How to use yoga as a practice for knowing yourself more and why it's so important to consider if you're a therapist How yoga can “hold you” in times of flooding or overwhelm The connection between yoga and [one of Lisa's favorite concepts) Interoception All the ways that a yoga practice can look (...the answer might surprise you) And before she goes, Lauren guides you through an exercise to unlock the diaphragm (...it's perfect for when someone says, “take a deep breath” and you can't - because this absolutely happens sometimes … or more times than we want to count). Listen to today's episode and expand your capacity for accessing the ventral vagal response so that you're able to stay connected to yourself with whatever is happening in you and around you (...playroom included). *

This week, we present an archival City Arts & Lectures program recorded in 2010 with the late Archbishop Desmond Tutu and his daughter, the Reverend Mpho Tutu, in conversation with Roy Eisenhardt. Nobel Peace Prize winner Desmond Tutu dedicated his life to fighting for basic civil and human rights for all. Born a teacher's son in South Africa, Tutu followed his father's path and taught for several years before studying theology. From there, he became the first Black general secretary of the South African Council of Churches, and then the Archbishop of Cape Town. In 1997, Nelson Mandela asked him to chair the Truth and Reconciliation Commission after the abolition of apartheid. Archbishop Tutu presided over the ordination of his daughter Mpho Tutu into the Anglican priesthood in 2004. This program, recorded at Davies Symphony Hall on March 17, 2010, was just after the publication of a book they wrote together, “Made for Goodness, And Why This Makes All the Difference”. Desmond Tutu died on December 26, 2021, at the age of 90.
The funeral mass for South African anti-apartheid campaigner Archbishop Desmond Tutu has taken place at the Anglican cathedral in Cape Town. In his eulogy, the country's president Cyril Ramaphosa described Tutu, a Nobel Peace Prize winner who helped end the racist regime in South Africa, as "the spiritual father of our new nation". We'll hear from a priest who came to know Archbishop Tutu over several decades. Also in the programme: the government of Borno state in Nigeria says it has closed camps housing over a million internally displaced people. And an astonishing story from China: a 37-year-old man who was abducted from his family has found his biological mother again, after drawing a map of his childhood village from memory.

Mali's military-dominated government has concluded a four-day national forum on paving the way for elections and returning to civilian rule, but many key players did not attend. Plus, Liberia's President George Weah declared rape a national emergency two years ago but is enough being done to tackle and eradicate the problem. And mourners have been filing past the coffin of Archbishop Desmond Tutu as his body lies in state at an Anglican cathedral in Cape Town.
His outspoken views on the South African government and what needs to change made him a fan favourite with the BizNews community. Rob Hersov – who has worked with Rupert Murdoch and Johann Rupert – joined the BizNews Power Hour to discuss his exciting African Gold SPAC. According to Bloomberg, the SPAC is targeting gold assets on the African continent and ‘raised a more-than-expected $360m ahead of a listing in New York on Friday. The 60-year old businessman joked that his mining magnate father – Basil Hersov – laughed when he was told about his son's latest business endeavour. ‘He really burst out laughing when I told him what I was doing. He said, ‘you've tried everything in your career to avoid getting into the mining industry and here you are, aged 60. He thought it was so funny.' In a BizNews exclusive, Hersov also revealed that he has purchased an airport in the Western Cape. Fisantekraal Airport – located just 13 km away from Durbanville – was built in 1943 by the British, says Hersov, and has four runways. ‘We want to build the Lanseria Airport of Cape Town. We're renaming it Cape Winelands Airport.' Hersov is no stranger to the aviation industry, founding Marquis Jet Europe – which he later sold to Warren Buffett. ‘Buffett called me in 2004 and said, ‘I'm buying your business', said Hersov to Alec Hogg in an interview last year.

The Table Talk podcast is on a festive break, but that doesn't mean we stop providing top content. We've delved into our archive and pulled out some of the best interviews from 2021. In this episode, Stefan Gates met Oliver Bennett; a British race car driver, turned energy drink entrepreneur. Oliver made his debut in the British Rallycross Championship in 2016 and fought for the title the following season. He is also the co-founder of Xite Energy, a brand bringing nootropic energy drinks to the mass market. Popular among Gen Z and E-sports athletes, nootropics support healthy brain function and mental ability. This podcast looks at the growing world of nootropics, as we chat to Oliver about why Xite entered the market and how the sector has developed, and will continue to grow. Why are so many E-sports athletes and Gen Z consumers embracing nootropics for cognitive health, and what can we expect from brands like Xite in the future? J Oliver Bennett Oliver Bennett is a 28-year-old British driver with experience in rallycross competitions. In 2016 he made his debut in the British Rallycross Championship and the following season he fought for the title. He also made his debut in the FIA World Rallycross Championship, where he has competed in recent seasons. Bennett has also participated in a number of Americas Rallycross events and the Gymkhana GRID in Cape Town in 2018, where he put on a great performance.

"Just brace yourself. It's hard but it's also beautiful." Welcome to Episode #8 in a 10-part series on "Parents in the Music Industry" - made possible with funding support from the Music in Africa Foundation, the German Federal Foreign Office, Siemens Stiftung and Goethe-Institut. Mapumba is a singer/songwriter and a guitarist who's into music, sound and life. He's based in Cape Town, and he's also a dad. In today's episode Mapumba talks about the differences between raising a teen vs. a young child, how his refugee background taught him the value of giving your children a sense of security, the emotional support systems required for artists, how your wealth is the love that you put into your creative practice (that's the only thing you have any control over!), and being prepared to take whatever comes with being a parent.

This morning, the world learned the news that The Most Rev'd Desmond Tutu, the former Archbishop of Cape Town died at the age of 90 on the Day after Christmas. One of the phrases that "The Arch" used in his sermons and talks was that we are all "God-bearers", people made in the image of God. How does that square with celebrating the second day of Christmas? In this morning's sermon, Father Blackburn explores what the preparations for Christmas looked like, but also what our role is now. The Scripture Reference for today is Isaiah 61:10-62:3. May Desmond rest in peace and rise again in glory.
Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the Nobel Peace Prize laureate who helped end apartheid in South Africa, has died aged 90. In 1986, Tutu became the first black Archbishop of Cape Town, which he used to great effect to help tear down apartheid. The current holder of that archbishopric, Thabo Makgoba, remembers his friend on Newshour. Also on the programme: Archbishop Desmond Tutu was a member of The Elders, which was set up by Nelson Mandela. The Elders Chair and former President of Ireland, Mary Robinson, recalls working beside him, recounting his commitment for causes from Palestinian rights to ending child marriage. And, Desmond Tutu's international campaign against apartheid opened the way for the ANC - the African National Congress - to come to power. We speak to a former ANC cabinet member.

Hosted by Dr. Jacinta Delhaize & Dr. Daniel Cunnama. Dan, and collaborator Sally Macfarlane (University of Cape Town), recently premiered a new full-length planetarium show focusing on South African astronomy. Together, they incorporate aspects of indigenous knowledge, the history of astronomy in the country, and shots of the various locations – all in a full dome experience. Our featured guests this week are Susan Murabana Owen and Chu Owen. Two astronomers, working in Kenya, passionate about bringing astronomy to everyone, not just those who can afford it. They founded The Travelling Telescope, a social enterprise, in 2014 where Susan serves as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) (she also holds positions as the President of the African Planetarium Society, and serves on the board of the International Planetarium Society), and Chu serves as the Chief Technical Director (CTD) (bringing with a wealth of astrophotography experience). The Travelling Telescope provides educational tools to aid school teachers, such as a mobile planetarium, a permanent planetarium in Nairobi made of bamboo, a robotics program (partnered with the Airbus Foundation), and virtual reality headsets. Through events hosted, such as the Nairobi star party, they hope to foster sustainable interaction with local communities, and provide a platform for these communities to tell their stories of the African sky.

Listeners will remember Khaya from our interview with Gert van der Waal in July. Lucy reflects on the role she's created for herself in the South African beer community and her reporting on Khaya. We also discuss the resiliency consumers and craft brewers have shown during multiple alcohol bans in the COVID-19 pandemic which has challenged the local beverage industry on many fronts. We finish by discussing the importance of understanding what is happening in South Africa as an indicator for the future of the beverage industry. Lucy shares interesting insights on how producers are finding inspiration in local, traditional, beverages, and how this discovery of cultural confidence can lead to a future rooted with a stronger sense of place.

In this episode, we address the popular concept of work-life balance, and why it is often misunderstood and is an unintentional source of stress. (Plus you get to hear Eric react to the phrase itself – priceless.) The bottom line is that for most of us escaping work isn't possible anymore. We discuss why the idea of “balance” is misleading or unattainable, and how it can sometimes even set us up for failure. We pivot and instead discuss the question, “how do I create the right amount of time and space in my life for all of the things that are meaningful and bring me joy?” We talk about the importance of specificity and boundaries, and why it's important for us to evaluate the choices we are making which compromise the goals we have for ourselves.

Dame Prue Leith is a broadcaster, writer, former restaurateur and a judge on the television show the Great British Bake Off. Prue was born in Cape Town, South Africa, during the era of Apartheid. After leaving school she moved to Paris to study at the Sorbonne, but decided that her future lay in food, and took a Cordon Bleu cookery course in London. She set up her own catering business from her bedsit, where space was so tight that she washed lettuces in the bath. In 1969 she opened Leith's, her own fine dining restaurant, in Notting Hill in west London. Leith's was awarded a Michelin star in the 1980s. She went on to write columns and cookbooks and became a regular broadcaster about food, on shows including the Great British Menu. In 1975 she opened Leith's School of Food and Wine which trains professional chefs and amateur cooks. Prue replaced Mary Berry as a judge on the Great British Bake Off in 2017.

It is not easy to be a woman on public transport. Across the world, you will hear reports of women being harassed, groped and even sexually assaulted. This has an enormous impact on women being able to take up employment and education opportunities, as well as accessing healthcare. Kim Chakanetsa talks to two women who are trying to change this. Angie Palacios is a Gender and Transport Specialist at CAF – Development Bank of Latin America. Her work focuses on researching and supporting projects that can improve women and girls' safety on public transport. She's originally from Ecuador but she's now based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Joanie Fredericks is an activist and entrepreneur from South Africa who recently set up Ladies Own Transport - an initiative providing safe transport options for women in Cape Flats, a crime hotspot in Cape Town. Joanie, a survivor of violence herself, had previously set up a women-only driving school. Thanks to her, nearly a 100 women have managed to get their drivers' licences. Produced by Alice Gioia (Image: (L) Angie Palacios, credit Angie Palacios. (R) Joanie Fredericks, credit Joanie Fredericks.)

Today we are walking with a trilingual professional, international education leader, and doctoral student. A District of Columbia native, Tonija moved to St. Paul (MN) where she earned her bachelor's degree in Latin American Studies and Spanish from Macalester College. After graduating, she moved to South Africa where she worked alongside University of Cape Town faculty to develop strategies that would encourage exchange among international and South African students. She later returned to DC and earned her master's degree in Tourism Administration with a focus on International Education from George Washington University. She currently carries out this mission in her role as the Director of the Ralph J. Bunch International Affairs Center at Howard University. As director, provides guidance and direction towards comprehensive internationalization. She also administers four programs dedicated to increasing the representation of systemically marginalized and historically underrepresented communities in foreign service and development. When she's not working as the director, she is completing her doctoral coursework in the Higher Education Leadership and Policy Studies program at Howard. A quick google search will reveal that she is THE leader in preparing students of color for global leadership and is an active in addressing racism in international education. Her social media will remind you of #HowardForward, #StudyAbroadSoBlack, #WorldDomination. But she always leave us with one question: If HBCUs were born out of a movement towards justice, what should international education look like at HBCUs? Let's walk and talk about it!
