M&G Newsroom: Meeting Malema and the Waterkloof Two

Join Deshnee Subramany and Amanda Strydom on M&G Newsroom between 1pm and 2pm as they discuss the week's biggest stories.

This week on the M&G Newsroom, hosts Deshnee Subramany and Amanda Strydom discuss all the big stories from the week and everything in between.

They take a look at the reactions to the Waterkloof Four video, which was leaked to a number of Sunday papers. After being released from prison on parole on Tuesday, two of the four men have been re-arrested pending an investigation into the video, which shows the men taking pictures on a cellphone and drinking alcohol in their cell.

Mail & Guardian associate editor Verashni Pillay will be sharing her experience of interviewing Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema and what his plans are for the upcoming elections.

Senior political reporter Mmanaledi Mataboge will be in studio to discuss the idea of a second deputy president, which follows a report that the ANC was engaged in "sensitive discussions" to create the position and re-deploy the party's national chairperson Baleka Mbete to this post.

In between, you can expect a roaring Weekend Choon, hear what news to keep your ear to the ground for this week, and listen out for some good music too.
