[LISTEN] Lindiwe Mazibuko, Refilwe Moloto, Rose Rogers on this week's hot topics

Politician Lindiwe Mazibuko, economist Refilwe Moloto, and journalist Rose Rogers have discussed the biggest talking points this week.

The trio of high school best friends debated current affairs topics including #DrosRape, #BrettKavanaugh, and Nhlanhla Nene at the state capture inquiry.

Read: 'Social media users are not buying Nene's apology'

There's a catharsis to having people air the truth, for having the facts the facts come out and having people's multifaceted-ness placed on the table. I think that's what has happened with Nhlanhla Nene.

Lindiwe Mazibuko, Founder of Apolitical Academy

It's very rare that we have South African politicians stand up and say 'I'm sorry, I was wrong. I beg your forgiveness'.

Lindiwe Mazibuko, Founder of Apolitical Academy

Political pressure can do crazy things to politicians... The ANC isn't the only one's who have had meetings with the Guptas before.

Lindiwe Mazibuko, Founder of Apolitical Academy

It's very hard to define what the line is in terms of ethics.

Lindiwe Mazibuko, Founder of Apolitical Academy

I think it's refreshing to receive the apology.

Refilwe Moloto, Founder and Principal Advisor at Ambassador Advisory

I feel the Dros rape story isn't moving on. I feel it's all about the accused. We haven't spoken about all the other families and kids that go through this every year. The stats are horrific.

Rose Rogers, Founder at Rushforth Network
