Africa Daily was launched a year ago and is a daily news podcast (Monday to Friday) for Africa. Each day we take a closer look at one story, one question, that is making news somewhere on the continent. We hear first-hand from the people at the centre of those stories. Our presenter Alan Kasujja and our network of reporters help us understand why things are happening and how they are changing people’s lives.  

In this live episode of the 'The Africa Daily' podcast our discussion will focus on online activism, the impact it’s having - and whether social media is becoming a space to build consensus and move forward.
 
Young people have been at the heart of shaping the hope for the future of Nigeria. Through the power of social media, the youth have brought to light issues around injustice, violence against women, unemployment, infrastructure, healthcare, and most recently police brutality.

Currently, over 16% of the country’s population are considered to be ‘youth’ aged 15 to 35. It’s now over a year since the biggest protests the country has seen about mistreatment by police. This, like most youth led movements, grew on social media in parallel to the movement on the streets.
 
In conversation with Alan Kasujja, will be prominent voices on social media in Nigeria - lawyer Feyikemi Abudu, blogger, Jola Ayeye, and queer rights activist, Matthew Blaise. We'll also be inviting YOU the audience to join the discussion.
