#13  The Alec Hogg show: Political disruptor Mmusi Maimane, back to activist roots - Macron-style. Ep 13

It's a year since Mmusi Maimane followed the lead of the late Frederick Van Zyl Slabbert and resigned from the Official Opposition to seek a political solution for SA outside of Parliament. History shows Slabbert made the right call, his contribution from outside the tent far more effective than it could possibly have been inside. So too, it seems, with Maimane. The mushrooming of this workaholic One South Africa movement suggests that he, too, is on the road to making a big difference. Drawing on the examples of France's En Marche, Poland's Solidarity and Zimbabwe's MDC, the Maimane-led movement is referencing successful templates. And as South Africa's Constitutional Court has demanding a re-writing of the Electoral Act, the timing is perfect. In episode 13, we hear the back story to South Africa's youthful politicial disruptor whose activism is rooted in deep religious roots.
