Radio podcast: Fighting Racism in Jail

The new prison show “Jail Break” starts to find its groove this week. In this fourth episode presenters Kabelo Keogatile and Vusi Mthombeni (from Orange Farm, South of Joburg) try to find out how to curb racism in our correctional centres. This is easier said than done.

In the studio they get help from JJ Mashiane of the South African Prisoners Organisation for Human Rights (SAPOHR) and Mohlolo Kgopane from The Justice Inspectorate. Wits Justice Project has partnered with community radio station Thetha FM in Orange Farm to develop this ground-breaking radio show aimed at inmates and their families.

From Thetha FM the show reaches five correctional facilities: Groenpunt, Vereeniging, Sasolburg, Heilbron and Krugersdorp. The show is broadcast in a mixture of Zulu, Sotho and English.
