On this episode of #TheDojo we kick things off with us dissecting the conversations around the backlash received by Kabelo Mabalane over his involvement in a gender based violence initiative which seeks to get perpetrators to get help. This segues into Mo explaining how entrenched patriarchy is in our society and how slow moving the needle is in changing societal mindsets. We move on to discuss the Sizwe and Unathi work dispute over lies of verbal abuse levelled against Sizwe by Unathi. We briefly touch on the use of connections, nepotism to advance in light of a viral clip of Natasha Thahane. We round off the Pod with a look at coalition politics in local government and some of the appointments that were made recently.
