We had a great discussion with Dr Mabe (picture below) who gave us an overview of how the Agricultural Department of the NW University is deeply engaged with the community. To fight against poverty, they donate eggs of indigenous chickens to small farmers not for food, but to raise chickens, and donating indigenous cattle for the same purpose.
For lunch we were treated with tasty traditional South African food at the local radio station SABC, and toured the facility. While visiting Benny airing his radio show I sat on a chair which all of a sudden turned into a hot seat. Benny started interviewing me on the spot without warning about our assignment in Africa, and millions of people listened. Check out what I said.
