True to living Nelson Mandela’s legacy, the station will start off by paying homage in the month of July, by focusing on the life of the former statesman. The station will be used as a platform to have in-depth discussions on topics relating to Nelson Mandela from birth.
This will run from July until December 2018, thereafter content shift to other topical issues. Music lovers will be enticed with an interesting twist of political struggle songs and other locally produced traditional music.
