In this episode of the podcast, Duncan McLeod interviews Project Isizwe CEO Duduzile Mkhwanazi on the non-profit’s plans for rolling out free Wi-Fi in South Africa following the dissolution of the company’s agreement with the City of Tshwane.
Mkhwanazi, who joined Project Isizwe from the Democratic Alliance 19 months ago (she had been pursuing a career in politics), explains what happened in Tshwane, and why the company is no longer involved in the city’s Wi-Fi project.
She talks about the company’s origins, the work it is still involved with and its expansion plans.
In the podcast, Mkhwanazi explains Project Isizwe’s business model, what role founder Alan Knott-Craig still plays and some of the opportunities it is pursuing, including in the area of TV white-spaces spectrum (it was involved with Microsoft in a trial of this technology in Limpopo).
