Our Team

Mpho Tsekwa grew up in Soweto and experienced first hand the impact of South Africa’s apartheid rule, as well as its transition to democracy in 1994. With a keen interest in the movement of people, he studied human demography at Northwest University in Mafikeng, followed by a Masters in town planning at the University of Cape Town. His passion and commitment to social change has ranged from involvement in student politics to being a facilitator for a diversity and inclusion programme for youth in Cape Town schools. He also has a keen interest in the dramatic arts and most recently performed a two-man show called “Telling Stories”, which explores the complexities of the South African story through the eyes of the man/woman on the street who is questioning the ‘good, the bad, and ugly’ of pre and post apartheid South Africa.
