Mbongeni Jonny Msimanga

  • University of Johannesburg, PhD in Media and Communications Studies


Mbongeni chose to pursue a PhD in Media and Communication studies because he has always believed it has an impact on our everyday lives. He says: “by focusing on the intersection of the media and satire, one realises that good satire comes from anger, a sense of injustice and wrongs in this world that need to be fixed.” Mbongeni hopes to continue to raise awareness in universities and society at large on how entertainment or satire are avenues for political discourse and identity formulation.
