These are testing times for South Africa and this time on Law Focus we look at how our democracy is challenged and upheld.

We speak to Professor Steven Friedman about the nature of our democracy.
Leanne Govindsamy from Corruption Watch joins us to discuss the Nkandla Constitutional Court case, and we hear an update from Naadira Munshi from SERI about the proceedings around Marikana.
We analyse the impact of social media in movements like ‪#‎FeesMustFall‬ with the help of TNS Global Brand Equity Centre’s Kyle Findlay.

We end off the show with a Constitutional Corner about the Right to Courts.

Law Focus is produced by Elna Schutz and presented by Luxolo Matomela. Nolu Memese assists with the Constitutional Corner.
Stream Tuesdays 6-7pm on or 88.1FM in Joburg.
