The CodeSwitch Episode 5: ‘Lobola 2.0’

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.

This episode sees the cast discusses lobola, the practice of paying a bride price, its place in society in 2014 and how each of the cast members relate to it as young black women who identify as feminists and, very importantly, womanists.
