Historiography of Mfecane/Difaqane on 702 FM Radio

702 FM Radio Podcast

Yesterday Thursday night August 27, 2020 after 10pm, I was interviewed by an engaging and popular DJ, Aubrey Masango on 702 FM Radio station on the topic of Mfecane/Difaqane.

This was a lively and engaging topic that foregrounded history; historiography; metaphysics and cosmology. I received lots of positive feedback from those who listened to the show.

Mfecane/Difaqane is about a tragic period in Azania (South Africa) of displacement; genocide and forced migrations that took place in the second and third decades of the 1800s. Millions of our people lost their lives; got displaced or got sold into a cruel trade of enslavement.

Does the name Mfecane have a lexical root in the African languages? How did this name come about? What was the history that gave rise to Mfecane/Difaqane?

If you missed the show last night, no worries! We have uploaded the full length radio podcast for your benefit. Without further ado, the Mfecane podcast.
