Description

South Africa commemorates National Book Week every first week of September. The theme for this year has been “Going Places”. It focuses on the power of books and how they can figuratively and literally take South Africans to places. This episode of Sunday Live puts into context the contentious issue of African languages amongst South Africa’s youth and her children. With the expertise of PUO (Puo is a Sotho word meaning “language”) a project aimed at empowering children through Africa’s oral heritage & culture, we discuss “the seemingly declining rates of literacy, specifically that of indigenous languages”. ,World News,World News ,2014 World News,Worldnews
