On Wednesday, 6 May 2015, the man often dubbed as the "Godfather of the South African theatre", Dr John Kani, joined Pippa Hudson in-studio on CapeTalk.
Something very special, very heartwarming, arose from Dr Kani's interview that was initially about the version of his play, Nothing But the Truth, being put on at the Artscape Theatre by the Siyasanga Cape Town Theatre Company.
In this thought-provoking interview, Kani spoke of an inspiring South Africa - a South Africa filled with hope and prospect, offering advice to parents, and South Africans on how we can achieve the South Africa that President Nelson Mandela once dreamed of.
He reflected on the Truth and Reconciliation Council (TRC), and his own grapple to find peace with a system that taught "forgive and forget", while he himself, lost his brother to an assassination under the Apartheid regime.
Dr John Kani also weighed in on the current spate of xenophobic attacks, stating that they need to stop - and we as South Africans need to be more proactive in putting them to an end. He posed the question that once all foreign nationals have left the country or have been attacked, where do we go next? He said it was a never ending cycle we would enter into, where the next victims could be Xhosas, could be Zulus, could be white South Africans. Kani said that it is our responsibility to ensure that we, as a nation, but a stop to these attacks and make a stand against them.
Kani finished the interview about speaking of the great hope that he foresees for South Africa.
He spoke of a South Africa without xenophobia, without racism, without sexism - a South Africa where everyone is respected and loved equally.
