Octavia Nkosi

About Me: 

I am human rights activist passionate about community pressing issues; basic service provision and local government civil society engagement.

I have 2 kids and am a single mother, who is willing to see the basic service delivery improving especially since our countries has been plagued by civil unrest since the democratic elections.

I have worked in various community organisation and non profit making organisations dealing with ecological damage, group harm and women and girl issues.

I have been involved in many community struggle which ended with me being arrested or harassed and above all told to shut up as a woman. I think patriarchy in South S Africa and the world still exist and is used as dominant force to suppress popular views.

My Passions: 
women involvement in media
My Challenges: 
funding to run a community radio station in Mpumalanga
My Vision for the Future: 
to see women becoming agents of change through media
My Areas of Expertise: 
media and environment
My Languages: 
English, sotho
