Anisa Mazimpaka – SABC 1’s One Day Leader 7 contestant, Social Justice Activist, #feesmustfall fighter and Public Policy and African Studies Postgraduate Student.
As Rwanda marks 25 years since the genocide, we speak to one of her displaced daughters. After moving to South Africa in 1996 as a refugee, Anisa is now a social justice activist and advocate of the #feesmustfall movement which saw institutions of higher learning grinding to a halt as students demanded reform on tuition fees.
In this episode she talks about the impact of having been born a the height of the genocide, we explore her views on challenges with political leadership on the continent, the need for educational reform and the reasons for her participation in a reality show on the South African Broadcasting Corporation TV Channel SABC 1, One Day Leader.
She is young, willing to lead from the front and eager to positively contribute towards transforming social, economic and political issues on the continent.
