The Friday Stand-In 2016

#FridayStandIn Former hard hitting newsman Songezo Zibi takes to the airwaves

Former Business Day editor Songezo Zibi says he wants to engage listeners about the meaning of a 'transformed, free and democratic society' on his #FridayStandIn show.

Zibi says he will also bring his knowledge in economics and discuss how ways that economic language can be made accessible, so that ordinary citizens can be part of the conversation.

The first is to have a discussion about what do we mean be a transformed, free and democratic society, and whether our behaviour reflect the transformation we say we want in society and how can we deal with some of that inconsistency in what we do.

Songezo Zibi, Friday stand-in

I want us to break down the complicated language because some of the complicated language around the economy exclude a lot of people from its implications, very ordinary people.

Zibi has background in corporate communications and public relations but decided to move into journalism in 2013 when he joined Financial Mail as its seniour associate editor.

He then left and joined Business Day in 2014 and left this year in February and is now the head of communications at Barclays Africa Group Limited.

Zibi is a also a published author. His book Raising the Bar: Hope and Renewal in South Africa 'provides a fresh, unencumbered analysis of the topics that pervade our daily lives, including race, leadership, politics, government, violence, the position of women and the taboos that haunt us'.
