02/10 5 MINS WITH MAWETHU
Mawethu Maxwele is an Activator since 2013 and is based in the Western Cape. We spent 5 minutes with him to find out what his passion is and how ACTIVATE! has helped him drive change in his community.
Activators Unathi Jacobs and Lelethu Godongwana are using art to unite their community as part of the ‘Outspoken Youth Initiative’, a collective of 18 artists from Gugulethu, Khayelitsha and Philippi who are driving change through music, dance and visual art.
I have always been amazed by the colours of Africa and especially South Africa. The diversity of our country is something I have never gotten used to and still marvel about.
We know great leaders. Leaders who are unashamedly passionate about their particular causes. But most importantly, it is important to know other young leaders, like you and me. Our thoughtfulness, integrity, and ambition, speaks volumes to those we serve.
“I definitely got more than I bargained for”, this is Thabang Mabuza’s first remark when we sat down to chat about how he spent his one day as CEO of South African Airways (SAA) Technical.
