Speak Out, is a factual reality show on SABC 2 that assists disgruntled consumers and business owners who have been scammed, 'taken for a ride', or robbed out of their hard-earned money through poor, bad or lack of service, dishonest business practices.
The new season comprises of 52 episodes with duration of 23 minutes. The series will kick start with 13 re-versioned episodes, revisiting old cases that touched many South African lives during their broadcast and we will be engaging consumers, businesses and industry experts regarding the effects of Covid-19, how the world is changing and how we must adopt to it.
Speak Out plays the role of a ‘Consumer Watchdog’ and ensures that a fair resolution for the consumer is reached and ensures that businesses take accountability for their wrong doing and in this season we will also be dealing with businesses/service providers that have been taken for a ride by customer who don’t honor their payments after work or service was delivered leaving businesses to a halt. Importantly the show educates consumers and small businesses owners to be more cautious and vigilant in their everyday financial dealings with the aim of creating financial savvy consumers and business owners who know their rights and responsibilities.
The current season of Speak Out will address all issues concerning money transactions from customer to business, business to business and any financial transactions between family members and friends. We follow the human story, we tell the emotional journey…We investigate, expose, educate and empower consumers and businesses.
In this season we are not only focusing on the complaint at hand but we delve deeper into understanding the emotional state and impact a consumer or small business owner has suffered through unethical financial transactions. We also expose big social financial issues which affect us daily be it directly or indirectly. Through this, we educate consumers on how different consumer organizations operate.
We deal with cases of people from different backgrounds and financial status who have gone through different lengths and strides to resolve their consumer or business complaint but still have no joy and ultimately, Speak Out becomes their last resort. Speak Out is the voice for the voiceless!
"As a presenter, I have always opted to present on shows that do more than entertain people. I love the idea of being on shows that make a difference in people's lives, such as “Big Up”, “All You Need is Love” and all other shows that I presented previously. Speak Out will give me the opportunity to tackle issue of consumer rights and dealing with businesses or suppliers who have not been paid by consumers. I relish the opportunity to be part of a programme that is a voice for the voiceless. With regards to filming the show; I look forward to continuing to meet different people and interacting with their stories and lived realities. I am learning a lot already, and foresee being challenged even more by the show. There is nowhere to hide when SPEAK OUT is around” commented Tshepo.
