South Africa’s Love Affair with China – With Phillip De Wet

Phillip-de-Wet-327x327My guest this week is Phillip De Wet.

Phillip is the deputy editor of the Mail and Guardian. This week we discuss South Africa’s love affair with China, why we still don’t understand China, why the ANC doesn’t buy its own rhetoric but why others do and the future of media relations in SA. It is worth noting we spoke in October just before the ANC’s NGC.

Phillip de Wet writes about politics, society, economics, weird stuff, and the areas where all of these collide.

Over the past decade and a half, he has also written about telecommunications, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), property development, civil liberties, riot policing, mining, movies, the media, and UFOs, among other topics.But never about serious sport, which he knows nothing about.He studied journalism and has never been anything other than a journalist, except for ill-considered stints as a media trainer and starting up new newspapers, magazines and websites, a suspiciously large percentage of which are no longer in business.
