South Africa faces a myriad of socio-economic challenges – from poverty to inequality – and there are calls for South Africans to solve some of their own problems by becoming a more “active” citizenry. Ellis Mnyandu and his guest co-host Bongiwe Moeli are joined by Mzwandile Simelane, who represents Citizens ZA Movement, a non-profit organisation looking to build platforms for engagement and active civic duty. They discuss the role of the youth, challenges to economic transformation and the inability of government and business to work together.
