The Week that Wasn't with Nik Rabinowitz

South African funnyman Nik Rabinowitz threw a few punchlines at some of the week's leading news and current affairs stories.

Listen to the full conversation from The Redi Tlhabi Show:

These were among the many matters Rabinowitz poked fun at:

  • January woes
  • Racial tensions following Penny Sparrow's comments
  • Call centers during holidays
  • The controversial #ZumaMustFall banner
  • Temba Bavuma's cricket success
  • Calls for a coalition between the DA and the EFF
  • The High Court ordering M-Net to re-instate Gareth Cliff

702 welcomes all comments that are constructive, contribute to discussions in a meaningful manner and take stories forward.

However, we will NOT condone the following:

  • Racism (including offensive comments based on ethnicity and nationality)
  • Sexism
  • Homophobia
  • Religious intolerance
  • Cyber bullying
  • Hate speech
  • Derogatory language
  • Comments inciting violence.

We ask that your comments remain relevant to the articles they appear on and do not include general banter or conversation as this dilutes the effectiveness of the comments section.

We strive to make the 702 community a safe and welcoming space for all.

702 reserves the right to: 1) remove any comments that do not follow the above guidelines; and, 2) ban users who repeatedly infringe the rules.
