atrocities on the indigenous peoples of South Africa. Many people are not aware that
museums house unethically collected human remains of many indigenous peoples
collected under questionable circumstances. The remains of these people await
repatriation and although repatriation is a museums’ objective, there are many
There was previously an exhibition that contained the empty boxes which currently
house human remains within the Iziko collections as well as that of the crate which
housed the coffin of Sarah Baartman.

Melody, a brand-new TV series, filmed entirely on location on the Cape flats and Cape
Town and starring local actors, has been well received on SABC 2 and will be renewed

It is a story about a young and talented penny-whistler from Athlone who uses music as

apartheid, as well as the progress the continent has made, while also reflecting upon

With the month of Ramadan ending, Eid al-Fitr, the Muslim festival celebrating the end
of the month of fasting, has been uniquely different to any other year. This year,
Muslims across the world experienced an Eid like never before
Traditionally, the important celebration would be spent with communal prayers in
mosques and big gatherings with family and friends, but this year it looked different
with many Muslims celebrating Eid creatively at home.
Some joined virtual gatherings or used social media (like WhatsApp) to keep connected
with extended family and friends.

The Liquor Traders Association of South Africa (LTASA) has submitted a document to the
government on behalf of its members with recommendations around the sale of
alcohol at level 3 lockdown.
Alcohol sales will likely be allowed again under level 3 lockdown restrictions, which
president Cyrial Ramaphsa said is likely to happen before the end of the month.
Under current level 3 proposals, off-premises consumption of alcohol will be allowed,
subject to limited hours (Mon-Wed 08h00 – 12h00), and subject to an approved industry
plan on social distance and quantitative restrictions.

Guest : Leanne Germanos | Founder at The Embrace Project |
The Embrace Project is an NPO which aims to "creatively combat" gender based
violence. We provide an online platform for the sale of artwork of different South
African artists and creatives who collaborate with our organisation. The proceeds of
these sales are given to selected grass-roots organisations already combating gender
based violence in their own communities. These organisations are the beneficiaries of
The Embrace Project.
The Embrace Project also creates awareness, through its social media pages, around
gender based violence (it’s prevalence and causes) while simultaneously working at
changing the narrative of violence and disempowerment.
