REWIRED Podcast – Power Disruptor Ayanda Sishi Part 2 | Youth and Gender Activism and BIG

Youth and Gender activist, Ayanda Sishi Wigzell speaks to Isobel Frye, Khutso Makobela and Amahle Ngwenya of SPI on Basic Income Grant in this two-part episode.

In Part One Ayanda talks about the importance of Dignity in defining her activism and how poverty actively erodes this. Growing up she saw how grants enabled poor people in her surrounds to live with greater dignity of purpose.

In Part Two Ayanda talks with great passion about the divide and distance between formal politicians and the youth in South Africa, concluding that if there were any decent politicians in South Africa today we would have had a universal Basic Income Grant a long time back.
