Podcast Description

Helen Zille has been one of the most prominent, and sometimes controversial, figures in South African politics for several decades. The daughter of German Jews who escaped the Holocaust, she has been an activist and campaigned against apartheid her whole career. While working as a journalist in the late 1970’s, she helped expose the cover-up of the murder of black activist Steve Biko and has held several different leading political roles in South Africa since. In this episode of the Accomplishment Podcast, Helen discusses her upbringing, the moral imperative of building a capable state and the challenges of South African politics.
