Super Stage 2 – 100% IN

Congratulations on a terrific and inspiring SuperStage event this evening. It was amazing to be part of seeing the future of our nation and the power of our youth when challenged in this way. Francois Bonnici, Director of the Bertha Centre for Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the UCT Graduate School of Business, Super Judge

I would like to take this honour as a beneficiary of your work to express my deep-seated gratitude for the many mountains you are moving. A fellow young politician and close friend of mine by the name ”Sizwe Mpofu Walsh” (huffington post calls him Africa’s Obama) says “South Africa faces the challenge of creating a society of opportUNITY. The first is in lifting one quarter of our population out of poverty by creating economic opportunity. The second is in creating a society of meaningful unity”. I agree with him and think that you are doing a good job in tackling both these in one go. I just hope you keep doing this and impacting people whatever the resistance you face. Kumbirai Gundani, Top 10
