Kwanda Talk

Since 2009, Kwanda has continued in the five original communities and has spread to other communities who want to see a positive difference in their lives.

In 2012 Soul City in partnership with the Department of Social Development produced Kwanda Talk, a follow up to the 2009 show and a travelling television factual reality programme with in-depth discussions of social issues and community development. Broadcast on SABC 1 every Thursday prime time from 21:30 TO 22:30, it is a show with communities, about communities, in those communities and is geared towards developing a space for people to access and shape government services better.

Building on the success of the Kwanda community reality show Kwanda Talk aims to:

  • Promote active citizenry
  • Give a voice to communities
