23 January 2018: Disrupt the Corrupt
In our fourth episode supported by the Ford Foundation, Jillian speaks with David Lewis, the executive director of Corruption Watch, who’s mission in their own words is to “Disrupt the Corrupt.” Corruption Watch believes that “it is our right and duty to hold our leaders to account.” An interesting role at a time when in South Africa, around the world, power holders are under intense scrutiny. David is a product of South Africa’s struggle for liberation. A union leader with a fundamental belief in the power of the collective. Today, David is a leader in a very different kind of struggle – engaging citizens to examine and rewrite our relationship to power and privilege.
