Listen to Outgoing Mayor Patricia de Lille at this Great Gathering of Media Minds

She won’t be the only powerhouse speaker at the Daily Maverick's annual media conference The Gathering: Former DA parliamentary leader Lindiwe Mazibuko and EFF’s Mbuyiseni Ndlozi are also on the bill. So are journalists Zapiro, Ferial Haffajee and Stephen Grootes.

Top politicians such as the EFF’s spokesperson Dr Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, outgoing mayor Patricia De Lille and the slew of anonymous whistleblowers behind the Gupta Leaks will meet and discuss the country’s news landscape at the Cape Town Convention Centre.

On 15 August, guests will have the opportunity to partake in dialogue hosted by the Daily Maverick's The Gathering event that explores an existential crisis facing the media while listening to discussions about the country post-Zuma and discovering how they can become involved in setting the course for a corrupt-free South Africa.  

Speakers at the event include:

·      Patricia de Lille (Mayor, City of Cape Town)

·      Lindiwe Mazibuko (Former DA Parliamentary leader )

·      Mahlatse Mahlase (Chairperson, SANEF)

·      Stefaans Brummer (Editor: amaBhungane)

·      Mondli Makhanya (Editor: City Press)

·      Adriaan Basson (Editor: News24)

·      Mbuyiseni Ndlozi (National Spokesperson, EFF)

·      Phumzile van Damme (MP, DA)

·      Zapiro (Daily Maverick cartoonist)

·      Steven Nathan, (CEO: 10X Investments)

·      Richard Poplak (Editor @Large: Daily Maverick)

·      Marianne Thamm (Assistant Editor: Daily Maverick)

·      Stephen Grootes (SAFM Morning Host and Senior Analyst: Daily Maverick)
