About the Series
One Day Leader is a reality format that aims to identify and develop young leaders, between the ages of 18 and 25, while engaging the public and creating awareness around critical social and economic issues.
For South Africa to reach its developmental goals, and address its many social issues, it will need strong leadership: not only now, but well into the future.
The idea behind One Day Leader is not to criticise current leaders or forms of leadership. Instead the show aims to encourage young and bright minds to come up with innovative ways of addressing issues, while exposing them to the kinds of challenges and difficulties leaders are faced with.
The series was hosted by Masechaba Lekalake for the first two seasons. She was replaced by Tumi Mothotoane in Season 3.
