On air: 23 November 2012 13:20 - 30 November 2012 13:20 (Photo: AFP)

More about:

In many African countries, half the population is under 25 years old. Why, then, do young people play such a minor role in major decision-making processes that will affect their very own futures?

Our programme today talks to youth about their role in politics. We also ask if better debating skills could help them become good politicians. 

Guests: Mpanzu Bamenga (DRC)
Ama Ashanti (Ghana/The Netherlands)
Lydia Mathia (Kenya)
Peter Ngure (Kenya)
Plus young people across the African continent sharing their views

Producer: Winnie Onyimbo

Contributions from: Joke Fayemi (Nigeria) and Creavat Chituta (Zambia)

Duration: 29’20
