Project Isizwe, which provides the Tshwane Free WiFi service, announced on Tuesday it has appointed Dudu Mkhwanazi as the new CEO.
The organisation said the 26-year-old describes herself as an “activist” for Free WiFi.
Project Isizwe said Mkhwanazi has a demonstrated history of successfully managing complex projects (without mentioning them) at scale.
Mkhwanazi holds a Master’s Degree in Public Policy Analysis from University 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,” said Project Isizwe in a statement.
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, according to the organisation.
“Project Isizwe is lobbying for ubiquitous, government subsidised internet access within a walking distance of every South African”, Mkhwanazi said in a statement.
“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.
