The Right To Win 2016: Meet in-house celebrity Nomsa Mazwai


MEET political analyst and musician Nomsa Mazwai —  an in-house celebrity alongside 5fm DJ Sureshnie Rider and Cape Town-born actor Terence Bridgett on The Right To Win.

The democracy game show is aired every Saturday at 18;30 on SABC2 and contestants demonstrate their knowledge of all things democratic, including general information about our country, our local government, elections and democracy in general.

The Right To Win is about elections aimed at educating the electorate, ordinary people like you and me, on what our democracy is, what is enshrined in our constitution and what the rules of local government are.

You can never develop or improve on something that you do not know. People must always remember that our constitution is a living document that we must engage. If something in our constitution is hindering development, we must be able to engage and see if we need to amend it” Says Nomsa.
