Ayanda Kasa-Ntsobi

Gauteng ANC Youth League provincial secretary

Recently appointed Gauteng ANC Youth League (ANCYL) provincial secretary Ayanda Kasa-Ntsobi describes her involvement in politics as sheer chance. Born in a small village in the Eastern Cape, her passion has always been community development and HIV/Aids. Until 2004, when she was elected regional treasurer of the ANCYL, Kasa- Ntsobi never thought of herself as being a leading political player. She was only persuaded to accept nomination by friends, who cited her 12 years as a community HIV/Aids activist, motivational speaker and writer as valid reasons to throw her name into the ring. Although her political career appears to have taken a positive turn since she was elected last year to her current position, Kasa-Ntsobi says she is only prepared to serve one term. After that it's back to doing what she loves best � motivating and developing communities to take ownership of their issues, such as HIV/Aids. � Matuma Letsoalo
