Moeti says digital spheres sometimes aren't enough to create change on their own but are useful enough to enable and promote awareness.
She says her organisation, amandla.mobi is an independent, community advocacy organisation that seeks to build a more just and people-powered Mzansi.
To do this, she says, they are working to turn every cell phone into a democracy-building tool so that no matter where anyone lives, what language they speak, or what issues they care about, they can take action with others.

Moeti adds that her organisation often goes further than collecting signatures, saying people who sign up for petitions are sometimes engaged and consulted on how to take matters further beyond digital boundaries.
It is about sustained action in some instances.— Koketso Moeti, Executive Director at Amandla.Mobi
