Faith healing has come under the spotlight following the building collapse in Nigeria that claimed over 60 South African lives. How does it work? Is it simply mind over matter? Prof. Ernst Conradie from the religious studies department at UWC joined John to talk it through.
John crossed to Erika Gibson, Senior Specialist Reporter for Media 24, who broke the story of a mysterious business jet, registered in the US and carrying nearly $9.3 million (R102 million) in cash, landed at Lanseria International Airport, last week.
