Clement spoke to the Public Protector’s office on their reaction and deliberations. Arrests were made during raids in the township of Soweto following a night of unrest.

Minister Senzo Mchunu joined us to make us understand why some 123 843 vacancies in the Public Service remain despite unemployment soaring to a scary 29%.
