ENTREPRENEURSHIP: New CEO Fully Committed to Free WiFi for South Africa

 





Recent Gauteng Business News

PROJECT Isizwe – the NPO behind Africa’s most successful, large-scale Free WiFi network – has announced Dudu Mkhwanazi as the new CEO. Mkhwanazi is deeply committed to enabling social justice and empowering South Africans through free access to the internet.

Mkhwanazi’s appointment to the executive role is set to see Project Isizwe ensure its mandate as the advocate for Free WiFi as a human right. “Project Isizwe is lobbying for ubiquitous, government subsidised internet access within a walking distance of every South African”, says Mkhwanazi.

The 26-year-old describes herself as an “activist” for Free WiFi. “I believe in being part of an organisation that not only sets out to change people’s lives but also rewrites the history as far as empowerment is concerned.”

Mkhwanazi has a demonstrated history of successfully managing complex projects at scale and holds a Masters Degree in Public Policy Analysis from Université Montpellier. Her unique leadership approach combines authentic relationship building with thorough business rigour to deliver sustainably impactful projects in pursuit of social justice for all South Africans.

“Internet access is a tool to empower those in low socioeconomic ranks. When the government heeds the call to make internet access a basic human right akin to water and electricity in South Africa, it will be more than a progressive pioneering policy, it will be a selfless act to bridge digital, economic and social divides.”
