It's been only six months since consummate advocate and activist, Kumi Naidoo, returned to South Africa, after being away for six years heading up Greenpeace.
In his process of 'relearning and reconnecting with his country', Kumi opened up the debate on South Africa’s nuclear building programme.
Professor Philip Lloyd, Cape Peninsula University of Technology’s Energy Institute argued “for nuclear building”, and Dominique Doyle, Energy Policy Officer at Earthlife Africa argued “against nuclear building.”
And the nuclear debate was also on Twitter.

Kumi talked to Mo Ibrahim, founder of the Mo Ibrahim Foundation, about the challenges facing African civil society.
Ibrahim shared his views on the state of agriculture, land, leadership and youth activism in the continent.
And there was a surprise guest! Kumi chatted to rapper Riky Rick...
Even though, Kumi says he was nervous, he did an amazing job. See some of the behind the scenes highlights on our Facebook gallery below.
