Project Isizwe has appointed a new CEO, Dudu Mkhwanazi.
Project Isizwe is a non-profit organisation which believes the Internet should be an essential service subsidised by the government.
Mkhwanazi said she would continue to advocate for free Wi-Fi as a human right.
“Project Isizwe is lobbying for ubiquitous, government-subsidised Internet access within a walking distance of every South African,” she said.
Mkhwanazi holds a Masters Degree in Public Policy Analysis from Université Montpellier and has a history of managing complex projects, said the company.
Project Isizwe runs Tshwane’s free Wi-Fi services, but the city’s contracts are currently out to tender for a new service provider.
