Is democracy a western idea that does not belong to Africa? “The constitution belongs to the people and the president is an employee of the people,” says Shaka. He also answers questions about the coronavirus outbreak and says that the problem with a “lot of African countries is that the citizens cannot rely on their own medical care systems.” Shaka also shares who he would like to have been if he was not the host of Straight Talk Africa.
Shaka: Extra Time is a weekly show (every Tuesday at 16:30 UTC) on the Straight Talk Africa Facebook page, where viewers and social media followers ask the popular Straight Talk Africa host, Shaka Ssali, questions about politics in Africa. Paul Ndiho hosts the show. In this episode Jackson M'vunganyi host of Upfront and Red Carpet sits in for Paul.
