Mbongiseni ‘Bongi’ Mdakane was sentenced to  22 years in prison, and now he is a PhD candidate at the University of South Africa.  We talk about growing up in Soweto, the conditions of South African prisons, the gang structures in prisons he lived in, and the stigma of a record.  This episode was so powerful that we split it into two, so here’s part 1.

 

All the love to Ruth Hopkins of the Wits Justice Project and Katlego Mahlake of the Wits Radio Academy at the Witswatersand University in Johannesburg.  They let us use their studios, and stayed past work hours to accommodate us. They deserve all the love.
