Mazibuko's Apolitical Academy 'best news' for politics: Bongani Bingwa
She announced earlier this week that she was opening an academy for political studies.

What makes her initiative so impressive is that it also seeks to place candidates in a dynamic environment in which there is a diversity of views and not the navel-gazing we often see in various parties.Bongani Bingwa, Breakfast Show host

It leads not only to the ruin of the very person you think it aids but your own.Bongani Bingwa, Breakfast Show host
