Panel discussion at Report launch on youth leadership

Panel discussion at Report launch on youth leadership

At the launch of the report in September 2018, An Abundance of Young African Leaders – But no Seat at The Table, a strong panel line-up discussed the report and examined questions on how young leaders are likely to be better represented and have input into decisions affecting the course of the continent.  The panel, which was led by  discussion was led by 2012 Tutu Fellow Julie Gichuru included 2006 Fellow Janah Ncube, 2018 Fellow Serah Makka-Ugbabe, David Kamau, Raphael Obonyo, Kanini Mutoomi and 2014 Fellow Lade Araba.   Raphael is the Co-Chair of the advisory board of AFLI’s Project Pakati initiative, which produced the report. 

The video below of the panel discussion was produced and aired on Julie's TV show, Africa Leadership Dialogues in October on Citizen TV Kenya, but has had a broader reach online. 

One of the thorny questions the panel grappled with was the idea that Africa's leadership class won't readily relinquish control of the levers of power to a new and younger generation of leaders.  Another was the extent to which young leaders are prepared to lead.  

For the answers, which looked at the nuance and complexity of these questions, watch the video below.
