Lindiwe Mazibuko launches new initiative: Apolitical Academy
Former DA parliamentary leader, Lindiwe Mazibuko has launched a new initiative, called the Apolitical Academy.
The academy is dedicated to streaming young people who are socially aware, into public service.
She joined Joanne Joseph on the Afternoon Drive to share more on the project and who can get involved.
There are groups of people who are activists and activist-minded already but don't have any roots in running for office or serving in government.Lindiwe Mazibuko, Former DA parliamentary leader
There is just a whole lot of existing gaps in terms of knowledge, experience as well as youth and demographic shifting around gender and age, where we can plug quality, talented, ethical people who wanted to run for office into a system that doesn't really have a way of preparing them for a public life beyond requiring them to join a political party immediately.Lindiwe Mazibuko, Former DA parliamentary leader
We are launching a leadership programme that is going to be targeted towards helping ethical, transformational young people and women to transition from other sectors into politics and government.Lindiwe Mazibuko, Former DA parliamentary leader
