The Dis-Chem Brain of CapeTalk

VIP Brain edition: the DA take on the ANC

The Brain of CapeTalk and 702 will begin on the 2nd of February. To remind everyone of how the game is played we set up a mock quiz with two politicians from DA and ANC.

Shaka Sisulu of the ANC and John Steenhuisen, Parliamentary Chief Whip for the DA played for bragging rights as the "Brain of Politicians".

Here are their scores after 60 seconds: Shaka Sisulu – 6 out of 11
John Steenhuisen – 7 out of 12

Listen to the clip and see if you would have scored more.
