#NoToXenophobia ... Lulu Nifemi Raheem

Lulu Raheem is an African Elections Expert and heads the EMCA in Africa. She aims to unify election processes on the continent and advises on the legislative requirements to create environments that allow for free, honest and credible elections.

"iStart2 care more about my democracy" - Lulu Raheem

We chat to Lulu about election campaign stategies on the continent (What should we expect from the different political parties?), women in politics (Are we ready for a woman President?) and the challenges around xenophobia (Are we addressing the real concerns and problems?).

To listen to the show and the song I am a migrant too from the iStart2Sing cd, just click play:
