In this first episode of Series 2, we speak to Lukanyo Mnyanda, editor of Business Day, Africa’s leading financial daily, based in Johannesburg.

As Business Day celebrates its 35th birthday, Lukanyo talks to us about the history of the paper and the important role the business media and community in South Africa play in upholding governance and institutions.

We also discuss the outlook for the political economy in the wake of the Moody’s downgrade earlier this year and the impact of Covid-19.
