Oliver and Adelaide Tambo Foundation CEO Zengeziwe Msimang reflects on her experience of living in exile.

Africa Friday on 702Breakfast focuses on a specific African country and what it is like to live there.

This week the focus is on the ties that bind South Africa with Zambia.

Bongani Bingwa chats to Oliver and Adelaide Tambo Foundation chief executive officer Zengeziwe Msimang on what it was like living in Zambia.

What is fascinating about growing up in exile and the experience is different for everyone. But with us, we had a home in Zambia. I was born in Lusaka so I had no idea of what South Africa looks like.

Zengeziwe Msimang, CEO - Oliver and Adelaide Tambo Foundation

She says she gets teary-eyed when she listens to Ladysmith Black Mambazo as that is what represented South Africa to her.

We were so lucky that in the places that we lived, the people made us feel like we were at home. Zambia was such a supportive country. The relationship between Oliva Tambo and Kenneth Kaunda cemented the assistance that the country gave to South Africans.
