There's a war of words being waged through the South African news media; a war of buzzwords. One of those terms is "state capture", which describes something South Africans say happens all too often - when businesses close to the ANC government of President Jacob Zuma exercise undue political influence and benefit unfairly from government tenders - ending up with taxpayers' money in their pockets. At the heart of the accusations is a powerful business family, the Guptas, who have close ties with the Zuma family and whose business empire spans computer equipment, mining and media. The Guptas have been fighting back against accusations of state capture with a public relations offensive and a buzzword of their own. A trove of leaked emails originating from the Guptas and their associates ha...

Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe A recent upsurge of violence against foreign nationals in South Africa has raised contentious questions about how to talk about the issue in the media. When the influential King of the Zulus, Goodwill Zwelithini, was quoted as saying that foreigners "should pack their bags and go" many saw it as a precursor to the attacks which have mainly been targeted at migrants from other African states. The king has refuted these allegations and says that the media have taken his words out of context. Others too have singled out the media for blame. South African President Jacob Zuma, has said emphasising the "xenophobic" nature of the attacks casts the country in a bad light. The question remains of whether the media are fulfilling their responsi...

Journalists in Turkey and South Africa both work in countries with lively and well-established media. But in both countries, long-running single-party rule has led to challenges for reporters.

Joining the program: *Thobile Hans, a Johannesburg, South Africa based journalist for Africa Business News. *Gökçe Aytulu, deputy editor of Hurriyet Daily News in Istanbul, Turkey.
Women and the Media: Crystal Orderson, Journalist and Gender Activist In its preamble, the South African Constitution declares its intention to establish "a society based on democratic values, social justice and fundamental human rights". Even as far back as 1955, the African National Congress, South Africa’s current ruling political party, along with several other political groups, asserted their ideal of a country free of inequality and discrimination between men and women. Over the years, women’s rights to be free of violence, oppression and discrimination have been emphasized in various legislative frameworks and in international treaties adopted by the South African government such as the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action. These have resulted in gradual but significant ad...
President Jacob Zuma generates a lot of bad press in South Africa but he isn't without allies in the media. Zuma's backing from the state-owned South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) and his cosy relationship with the Guptas, an influential family who own several businesses including the New Age newspaper, have helped counter criticism by opposition parties and negative media coverage. But with local elections just around the corner and the ruling African National Congress party's appeal waning, controlling the media message is essential for Zuma - now more than ever. The Listening Post's Nic Muirhead travelled to Cape Town to take a look at the complex relationship between Zuma, his government and news outlets in South Africa. - Subscribe to our channel: http://bit.ly/AJSubscri...
