Mr Sabelo Mpisi
Researcher

Sabelo is a Social Anthropology Master's degree holder from the University of Cape Town (UCT) in South Africa. His research covers a wide range of topics such as ageing in rural KwaZulu Natal and sanitary conditions in South African townships, revealing unique social dynamics. He is also passionate about exploring the experiences of vulnerable social groups, material-human interaction, and the challenges faced by young people in their livelihoods. Sabelo is a recipient of the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship (MMUF) and MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program (MCFSP) from UCT. Currently, as a Young African Research Fellow (YARF) at the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC), he is working on a project that examines structural barriers to fulfilling work for young people in Africa. His interest in unconventional knowledge-sharing methods like podcasting and virtual curation has been further fueled by this project.
