WhatsApp-Image-2019-10-17-at-18.16.17

A group project is one of the requirements of the Tutu Leadership Programme.  Group Three of the Class of 2019 submitted and presented this scenario in which it looked at questions around trust and how it might impact development in Africa in future. The group, which comprised Emilia Siwingwa, Lesego Holzapfel, Angela Gichaga, Sangu Delle, Simba Mhuriro, Edwine Barasa, and Sampson Itodo, considered the factors that impact how truth affects areas of development like the environment, technology, health, culture, economics, and politics.  It considered policies Africa might enact to ensure that the social fabric of the continent isn't torn further by rising trends around deepfakes, troll farms pushing disinformation, malicious misinformation distributed for political gain, and other dislocations impacting shared, commonly understood sources of information. 

It presents a positive scenario for the continent in a decade and a half - in 2035 - and steps needed to obtain that outcome. It also presents a negative scenario and the implications for the continent. The presentation ends with six strategic agendas with policy suggestions for Africa to arrive at a positive outcome in 2035.

The full presentation can be downloaded below. Note that this is a large file.
