DIARY: 06 October with Makanda Finance



It’s Throw Back Thursday, and we open the show with the late Brown Dash’s “Vum Vum”. This is a banger. Then Skwatta Kamp with “The Klap Song”. We rounded off the triple play with “Dubula” by Mr Bouga 2 Shoes Kabelo Mabalane. Now if you don’t relate with these you’re too young.

In “What Now” today, the SABC seems to be making more headlines than they report these days. The Sowetan runs with a story of two of the national broadcaster’s board members resigning yesterday in the midst of the saga involving former acting COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng.

On twitter this morning, #QueenOfKatwe was trending after the SA premiere of the movie last night starring Lupita Ngong’o. This is a story of a young girl in the slumps of Katwe in Kampala Uganda, who discovered her incredible ability to play chess. Azizzar has the book, I don’t. Anyway also trending was #PPFarewell. As the Public Protector Thuli Madonsela nears the end of her term in office, the country bid farewell to her last night. This is the one woman who has had the president and a few other powerful people in the country by the scruff of the neck over the years, and we will definitely remember her incredible work in the #GuptaGate, #Nkandla, #MidvaalSaga to mention just a few. We salute her, and definitely hope this is not the last we see of Advocate Thuli Madonsela.



In the second hour of the show we had our “Hustler’s Corner” as we always do on Thursdays. This week our guests are from a company called Makanda Finance, which is a micro loan services company founded in 2010 by Mohamed Makanda. He was later joined by Khomotso Disolwane and Smanga Dlamini. They have done incredibly well for themselves after starting the company on a capital of just R1 500. Although they have done so well, they lament that the government has never been supportive of this venture, and would rather waste money on other things than help uplift up and coming South African entrepreneurs. They say that acquiring financial assistance from them is very easy and you can apply in less than 10 minutes, and if approved you will more likely than not have the money that very same day. You can find out more about them and their business on www.makandafinance.co.za

From here on we go back to our #TBT and just play music from back in the day. Catch us again tomorrow from6-9am on VUMA 103 in KZN and RISE fm in MP. It’s still Two Stations, One Man, One Mic, One Breakfast.
