Mustafa educated the TEDxEuston audience about the inequality faced by the Nubian community in Kenya. He takes us through his quest of how he was able to go beyond being a victim to a change maker. He explains how important it is to remember that you can silence an organisation, but you cannot silence a community. Justice and equality is everyone’s right! Watch and be inspired!

Mustafa is a committed social activist currently working with Namati’s Citizenship Program. Mustafa was most recently the Program Manager at the Nubian Rights Forum, a Kenyan NGO, where he managed a team of 7 paralegals assisting the Nubian ethnic minority in applying for citizenship documents. He has also been involved in a wide range of community work including volunteering for the Kenyan Red Cross and hosting radio programs which showcased politically motivated violence and enlightened the audience on the re-integration of ex-inmates.
