Ntsiki Mazwai Wishes To Be Remembered For This When She Dies

Ntsiki Mazwai has expressed her desire for her legacy. The poet hopes to be remembered for promoting self-expression through her platforms.

Ntsiki said on Twitter that she wanted to be remembered as a public figure who helped others speak their truth without fear.

“When I die … I want you to remember me for helping you express yourselves fully without fear or favour I want you to remember me for making you open up emotionally to difficult topics.”

The activist and poet is popularly known for speaking up on social issues.

Speaking to Newzroom Afrika, Ntsiki explained she felt her voice was necessary in the justice system and hoped corporate companies would back activists in their attempts to bring about change.

“South Africa is in a dangerous position at the moment where the justice system works more in favour for perpetrators than it does for victims, or for voices that speak for victims.” she said.

“I believe women and there is nothing anyone can ever do to take away my conviction and my voice from women who need my voice. I understand my voice is audible, I understand my voice is powerful and I understand I should not abuse that power, but I also understand there are women out there who need me to use my voice.”
