The show apparently seeks to include ordinary South Africans in purposeful and well-informed discussions about the economy.

The South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) has launched a new business and current affairs television programme due to air on Thursday nights.

The new show, called Economics Unbound, will be 30 minutes long and presented by SABC economics editor Thandeka Gqubule-Mbeki.

The public broadcaster’s spokesperson, Neo Momodu, said in a statement: “Economics Unbound is one of the flagship programmes of the SABC news division since its re-positioning in June 2018.

“The show seeks to rise above the market noise that obscures the understanding of the economy, how it operates, and how it is managed. The show seeks to include ordinary South Africans in purposeful and well-informed discussions about the economy, while providing them with enough information to make better economic and financial decisions.”

Momodu said the show would boast a widget named Nana as a co-anchor and include interviews with key decision makers.
