Last night, Live SA’s VIP (Voting Is Power) campaign kicked off the first of a series of of monthly debates called “The VIP Debate Club”. The first of the series was facilitated by our very own Lee Molefi with Vanguard Magazine founder & editor Panashe Chigumadzi as a special guest. The topic of discussion was “Who Says We Don’t Want To Be African?” and as you can imagine everyone in attendance – in addition to participating strongly in real-world – turned to social media to get their point across even more. These are some of the top highlights.
#LiveVIPZA: “Knowledge may move on but wisdom is an everlasting song” – what a debate!

Theres two things, the economics and the culture itself. African people themselves need to define that way forward #LiveVIPZA

The #2014Elections has set an exciting and vibrant context for the future of South Africa politics to unfold upon. What happens now that you’ve voted? How do we gauge whether we’re “moving the country forward”, whether we’re “bringing change” or “economic freedom in our lifetime”? Stick with #LiveVIPZA and we’ll give you analysis, debates, comments, polls and all YOU need to understand, enjoy and interact with SA politics.
