The Code Switch is a talk show based on articles appearing in Vanguard magazine and hosted by its founder and editor, Panashe Chigumadzi. The cast discusses a range of issues that speak to the life of young black women who are coming of age in post-apartheid South Africa and find themselves ‘switching’ through a number of culturally diverse environments.
The cast members include Pontsho Pilane, Obenewa Amponsah, Masehletse Lucy Balimba, Sebenzile Nkambule and Nozuko Mapoma.
In episode 2 the cast debate the implications of being labelled ‘entitled’ and how the concept of entitlement plays out in the global context for the so-called millenials and,more specifically, how it plays out for the generation of young black South Africans who have come of age after ‘freedom’ had been won and have had to bear the weight of great expectation from parents, communities, government and themselves.
