University student protests, Jacob Zuma's presidency and Chief Justice Dikgang Moseneke's retirement were talking points on the Open Line.
702/Cape Talks's #FridayStandIn, Richard Calland, gave listeners an opportunity to share their thoughts on a broad spectrum of issues in South Africa.
Listen to the conversation below:
Accolades need to go to Deputy Chief Justice, Dikgang Moseneke, he's been holding the shackles of the Constitutional Court since 2005. It's a great injustice that he never became a Chief Justice, he played a part of building our Constitution.— Mohammed, caller in Pretoria
The cost of education in this country is quite high. We need a skilled population and it's quite a problem.— Vusimuzi, caller in Randburg
What are your views about renaming South Africa? And if you were to rename it, what would it be?— Queen, caller in Kibler Park
Calland also drew parallels between the United Kingdom's Labour Party and the African National Congress in his analysis of political developments.
Is there some kind of sanction in a situation where a president has been found to have violated the Constitution?— Craig, caller in Orange Grove
