Is our democracy under threat?

Adv. George Bizos

Wits and The Weekender are hosting another debate. I didn't blog about the last one, but this week there are some big names in the ring. The advert below:

Date: Thurs 09 October 2008

Time: 6.00 for 6.30 p.m

Venue: Wits Great Hall, University of the Witwatersrand

Are we witnessing a calculated and systematic assault on our democracy? Is institutional independence under threat from the ANC? Or is all this alarmist sensationalism and political hot air in a pre-election year? Join The Weekender and the Faculty of Humanities at the Wits University in a public debate with some of the top minds in the country:

George Bizos – Senior Advocate and Human Rights Lawyer;
Gwede Mantashe – ANC Secretary General;
Patricia de Lille – Leader of the Independent Democrats;
Prince Mashele – Political Analyst from the Institute of Security Studies;
Prof. Yunus Ballim – Vice Principal and Deputy vice-chancellor.
