Media personality Rams Mabote has you covered in a witty tongue in cheek new podcast that is published on SowetanLIVE on Thursday.

Episode 5:Was the recent ANC national conference about the Buffalo getting out of the quagmire of the Phala Phala? Was it about Mr 10% finally putting his Digital Vibes in the highest office of the land? Or, was it about women on top?”

These are the questions posed by Taking the Rams by the Horns podcast host Rams Mabote following the conclusion of the ANC's 55th national elective conference where the party's new leadership was elected.

Episode 4: Rams opines that President Cyril Ramaphosa tried to take over parliament in the same manner in which his predecessor and scandal-prone Jacob Zuma did only a few years ago.

The national assembly this week voted that Ramaphosa should not be subjected to an impeachment hearing with his 'Rottweilers' Fikile Mbalula, Gwede Mantashe and Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula saving the day.

Episode 3: Mabote unveils his fantasy of marrying Joburg's no 1 citizen Mpho Phalatse, who recently tied the knot with Brutus Malada. Malada has apparently left a trail of broken hearts along the way into winning Phalatse's heart.

Rams also ventures into the politics of defending Ramaphosa by zooming into police minister Bheki Cele, who came out guns blazing against those wanting to see president gone.

Episode 2: In the second episode of the podcast, Rams, in his usual humourous perspective, dissects President Cyril Ramaphosa's recent state visit to the UK and his downgrade from the luxuries of Buckingham Palace to the pothole-riddled streets of Ditsobotla. Rams also describes the bizzare story of how SA's ambassador to the US, Nomaindiya Mfeketo's domestic worker, has accused her of witchcraft and poisoning.

Episode 1:  Mabote touches on the downfall of the two lawyers who represented the accused in the Senzo Meyiwa murder trial. He also chats to Muzi Khumalo, the man who bought the first printed copy of former president Jacob Zuma’s book, Jacob Zuma Speaks.
