Prof. Habib in 'a hell of a conversation' with listeners as a #FridayStandIn
An academic, an activist, and a renowned political media commentator and columnist, Professor Adam Habib was in the hot seat hosting the Redi Tlhabi show as a #FridayStandIn.
Habib's show evolved around fundamental themes of his research; transformation, democracy and development.
He entered Primedia offices with a huge smile on his face... See Facebook gallery below.
Habib kicked-off the show by inviting callers to engage him on what's happening to the state of human relations in South Africa. He did, however, declare his stance on the whole conversation about who can and cannot be racist...
During the second hour of the show, Habib asked the question of whether the South African University is dying, and spoke to Tim Nuttall, rector of St Stithians regarding this.
Moving swiftly along, Habib spoke to Prof. Barney Pityana and Sizwe Mpofu-Walsh about whether there is a breakdown in inter-generational communication around the decolonisation movements across South African universities.
Being a student activist of his time and former Vice-Chancellor of UNISA, Pityana gave interesting thoughts and perspectives.
Watch the whole conversation between Pityana, Habib and listeners below....
And it's was the end... by the look of his tie, Prof was really into it...
Three days later, Habib still felt he had a good show. He told Africa Melani, standing in for Redi on Monday, that he enjoyed good engagements and debates with callers.
