He is an ardent proponent of the Bantu based “ubuntu” philosophy, which posits that we are all interconnected, we are not fully human alone and we are created to thrive only through interdependence. His primary objective is to amplify this philosophy and contribute to a global shift in consciousness that incites an “ubuntu revolution”.
