Hopes for Africa

For the longest time, Africans have had to combat diverse issues that seem to hold the continent back from attaining its full potential. But there is a generation of those who still believe. Hopefully, their vision for a better Africa will create a spark across the continent that will fuel the realization of a greater Africa.

We will also love to know your hopes for Africa. Share with us by dropping a comment below or connecting with us on social media using the hashtag #HopesForAfrica

Right to peaceful protest (Can we have a word?)

With the constant brutal clashes that occur between agents of State and protesters, as well as the toxic face-offs between civilians who disagree on issues, we have decided to tackle the issue of protests in this newest episode of Kusema Africa. Can we just have a word?

Gate Keepers

The migrant and refugee crisis around the world has become a complex one. But if you approach the issue from a moral, religious or legal context, you will notice it isn't that complicated after all. 

We, as the human race, are better than the lines that divide us

My Lady - poetry video featuring Puno Selesho

South Africa continues to endure a rape crisis with the level of documented sexual abuse cases standing at 147 per day (according to 2015 SAPS statistics). This is of course believed to be a conservative number considering that most cases of sexual abuse go unreported. No matter the numbers though, it is unacceptable that anyone will be subjected to rape or any other form of sexual abuse.

We therefore worked with South African poet - Puno Selesho - to visually and lyrically address this issue. Puno's dynamic voice carries a message of change and challenges South Africa to man up! 

Through this poem titled MY LADY, Puno calls on women not to allow their pain hold them down but to let their glorious presence to be unfurled. And to the men, she says: Don't be known for the way you use your waist and your fists. But be known for the way you kiss her scars with your lips. Every line is deliberate and very powerful!

Corruption in Africa

The conversation around corruption in Africa will never get old until we overcome this menace. 

We could go ahead and list the number of corrupt African leaders but how about we all for once reflect on ourselves? Are you engaging in corruption?

Take a personal stand today and let corruption end with you.
