Dreams of my tata


2011 Tutu Fellow Shaka Sisulu shares with the audience at TEDx in Soweto in 2012 how much he was inspired by his uncle about the importance of dreams. In his homage to his uncle Zwelakhe, Shaka uses the power of imagination to travel into the future, where he brought back with him visions of a prosperous and affirmed Africa - the Africa that he says, we must create.

Born into a the renowned family that fought for and won the liberation of South Africa from apartheid. Shaka has a passion for start-ups. He points out how the best entrepreneurs have become successful from following their dream and working towards it. Dreams - and courage - are important if one is to realise those dreams.

Shaka seeks to leverage access to decision-makers, opportunities and resources for the benefit of African society at large. Shaka believes that sharing dreams with other people who can make them happen is just as important as having the courage to dream. Because of Africa’s huge potential, he thinks that a lot of dreams will become a reality in the future if Africans will dream them and have the courage to implement them. 

Shaka ends his talk by asking the audience to each think what their dream is and what they will do to accomplish it.
