The iAfrikan Weekly iTunes

With Balungile away for the week, Tefo Mohapi steps in to host the show as he recalls a chat he had with acclaimed and world renowned theoretical physicist, Dr. Michio Kaku.

Dr. Kaku, among many points, talks about why it is important for African countries to start focussing on the "Intellectual Capital Economy" and not so much the natural resources economy.

Ajay Rajani is also away and will return next week with his weekly Emerging Market News update, brought to you by Emerging.News.

To conclude the show, we close off with "Big Dreams" by Stogie T.
