Young MPs to watch: Yusuf Cassim

by: Onele Liwani - 19 December 2014

As part of our new series of content, Live in Parliament, we bring you a series of video profiles called “Young MPs to watch” – where we feature young parliamentarians who are shaping the future of South African politics. In this episode we profile the Democratic Alliance’s Yusuf Cassim who holds the distinction of being South Africa’s youngest MP. We talk to him about the current state of parliament and his work as a newly elected MP.



Live from Parliament casts a youth lens on parliament and government, covering committees, policy-making, MPs, and the sitting of actual Parliament. Our team of youth journalists will be reporting Live from Parliament every week in partnership with the People’s Assembly and  Indigo Trust.

The People’s Assembly connects people and their elected representatives. To stay in touch with your local MP, visit, follow them on Twitter @PeoplesAssem_SA or Facebook/PeoplesAssemblySA.
