Should young people bother voting?

Season 2, Ep. 1

It’s a year of big elections in Africa. In South Africa, Ghana, Rwanda to name a few. But in some of those countries, the opposition is weak or non-existent. And the election result isn’t in doubt. So should young people bother voting? We asked three activists working for democracy this very question. No surprise - they don’t all agree.

Yanga Malotana is a project officer for the Democracy Development Program in South Africa.

Oliver Barker-Vormawor founded the #FixTheCountry movement a non-partisan movement advocating for good governance in Ghana.

Seth Karamage is a development economist specialising in peacebuilding and good governance in Rwanda.
