UKZN academic and political commentator, Mr Lukhona Mnguni has taken over as the new host of Power Perspective on Power FM 98.7.

Mnguni will be on the airwaves Monday to Thursday from 20h00 to 23h00 and promises his listeners a mix of education and entertainment during his slot.

The talk show mainly focuses on forming a new conception of Politics, Economics, Education, Development, Innovation, Science, Art and many other issues that the country is facing- to have listeners engaging in meaningful conversations looking at the state of the country.

‘I wish to educate, conscientize and spark people into action about their society. If I manage half of this, I would be happy. Of course, I would love to be the go-to show for informative conversations about the state of our nation and the world around us. I wish to bring value to the time people give up listening to this show and attract new listeners to the show’, said Mnguni.

He feels positively overwhelmed for being afforded the opportunity to be responsible for curating content to a large audience which consists of different kinds of people from different backgrounds.

One of his first guests was President Cyril Ramaphosa where they tackled issues around Renewal and unity in the organisation, which has always been a constant motion in the years of ANC being the leading party in our country.

‘I have a great invention on the show where I will be interviewing many prominent South Africans on Thursday evenings to get their take on our country and the world’, he said.

He will be continuing with his political commentary and return to teaching at the University after the completion of his PhD.
