The author joined Joanne Joseph on the Afternoon Drive to share more about his research and pursuing the doctorate.
My history is an interesting one because I was in a media and communications space by pure accident, my first job was to be a spokesperson of a minister. So when I started writing and being an author and being invited to media platforms, I also got to understand how the media works so it gave me an interesting perspective from both sides of the fence.Dr Onkgopotse “JJ” Tabane, Author and host of Newzroom Afrika's Your View
That is what my thesis is about, to say how do you build those bridges between a Joanne Joseph and Clayson Monyela and how do they strike a good chord to make sure our people benefit. At the end of the day it's about how citizens benefit from information.Dr Onkgopotse “JJ” Tabane, Author and host of Newzroom Afrika's Your View
