You can see the levels of poverty. People are very poor here.” said Mwakasungula.

Mwakasungula said a real human rights activist sees a person as a whole. “You see a hungry person give him food, you see a naked person give him clothes, and this is all what activism is all about. You don’t just go to the radios, but you ensure that you take action before pressing a panic button,” said Mwakasungula.
