With 11 of­fi­cial lan­guages, South Africa is of­ten in con­flict over which one takes prece­dence. SABC’s Tshivenda drama se­ries, Mu­vhango, has done its fair share of pro­mot­ing the lan­guage spo­ken in the far north­ern parts of the coun­try. The show, one of the long­est-run­ning on TV, re­cently cel­e­brated its 20th year on air and con­tin­ues to keep view­ers glued to its tales of the Venda peo­ple.

So­cial De­vel­op­ment Min­is­ter Batha­bile Dlamini, fresh from de­fend­ing her de­ci­sions on the so­cial grants pay­ment cri­sis, told ANC sup­port­ers at Pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma’s birthday bash that “rogues” were leav­ing be­cause “we are led by a very strong leader”. Anyone would sing for their sup­per af­ter sur­viv­ing the Cab­i­net chop.
