NMMU's Sanda takes leadership to next level
Having been involved in underage-drinking himself, NMMU student and Top 3 One Day Leader contestant Sanda Ncama now co-mentors five teenagers in a new 13-part televised reality series, Future Leaders, on SABC 1.
Sanda, 23, a final-year music education student from King William’s Town, says the show is about young future leaders all of whom are teenagers who have previously experimented with alcohol. The teenagers’ awareness of the devastation that underage drinking has had in their communities inspires them to make a real difference and become role models for their peers.
The teenagers are Tayla Tomplinson, 17, from Port Elizabeth, Thobile Phantshi, 16, from Durban, Nkosana Banda, 17, from Johannesburg, Ndimphiwe Lwandle, 17, from Nelspruit and Chriselda Booysen, 16, from Kimberley. Sanda, and another two young role models, Ndumiso Hadebe and Seadimo Tlale, are their mentors.
