PODCAST | Meet Sandile Mnikathi, the young DA deputy mayor-designate
The social democrat talks to Eusebius McKaiser about his plans for the municipality and more
Eusebius McKaiser had a chat with the DAs nominee for deputy mayor of uMngeni municipality, Sandile Mnikathi.
Join the conversation:
Interestingly, he does not identify as a liberal but as a social democrat. On this podcast, he explains the difference to McKaiser. He also tells us about his personal biography and how, as the son of a domestic worker, he has come to live comfortably within a blended family featuring black and white members but which is not a life that is crudely reducible to race as such.
The discussion ends with a description of the plans for the municipality, Mnikathi’s response to those who think he is excitingly young but maybe too inexperienced for the job, and finally some thoughts on his academic journey, including his research focus for his PhD, which flows from his master’s work.
