As the intensity builds in the run up to elections, Daily Maverick, with Nandos and media partner eNCA, will bring SA’s most pressing political, social and economic issues to the fore in a special Election Edition of The Gathering. This ground-breaking event will see the convergence of the most pressing news issues and personalities governing the upcoming elections.
Confirmed speakers are wide-ranging and influential in light of the elections, and they include: Malusi Gigaba, Helen Zille, Zwelinzima Vavi, Mamphela Ramphele, Thuli Madonsela, Max du Preez, David Lewis, Irvin Jim, Iraj Abedian, Jay Naidoo, Fatima Hassan and Sisonke Msimang. The panellists will be grilled, probed and questioned, in front of a live audience by Daily Maverick and eNCA editors, asking the questions the audience and the country want to know.
“With our politicians vying for the media limelight and upperhand in the build up to May 7th, the main politics panel debate will definitely not need much petrol to start a fire, especially seeing that they will be interrogated by a top panel of political editors including Ranjeni Munusamy, Stephen Grootes and Justice Malala,” says Styli Charalambous, CEO of Daily Maverick.
Charalambous argues that such an event represents the purpose of Daily Maverick and its in-depth analysis approach, namely “to bring the truth, to the best of our abilities, to our audience whilst providing for the higehst quality enlightenment and entertainment”.
