Eusebius reflects on the interview the former Speaker of Parliament Baleka Mbete with Mehdi Hasan on Aljazeera on Friday.

Eusebius McKaiser says ANC stalwart and former National Assembly Speaker Baleka Mbete's interview with Mehdi Hasan on Aljazeera on Friday was a hot mess.

Mbete was responding to a number of hard-hitting questions about South Africa's economic and political challenges since 1994.

Eusebius says international media do excellent work with their research before their interviews.

I thought she came across as pathetic, ill-informed, unable to self-examine and quite frankly embarrassing.

Eusebius McKaiser, Show host

I always love how South African politicians think if they go on an international stage after avoiding interviews back home it will be easier.
