About Nqabayomzi Lawrence Saziso Kwankwa

What is your political background? I was born and bred in the Eastern Cape and I grew up in a politically inclined family as my maternal grandfather was a political activist. I was formerly a member of the African National Congress (ANC) and participated in South African Student Congress (SASCO) activities although I prioritised my academic work over political activities. I left the ANC in 2006 and then joined the United Democratic Movement (UDM) in 2007. More here...
