Call in to speak with the host
It’s not easy being Nelson Mandela’s granddaughters. Though no matter how much pressure that lot in life poses, it’s got to be a breeze compared to staring Jaws in the face. Speaking with Film Festival Radio host Janice Malone about their new Cozi TV series, Being Mandela, Zaziwe Dlamini-Manaway and Swati Dlamini reveal the depths to which they went proving that political activism can go hand-in-hand with adventure. “It was absolutely frightening and scary,” Swati says of shark-diving off the coast of their native South Africa. “I talked my sister into doing it. But by the time I got on the the boat, I was like, This is such a bad idea. Can we get off this boat? But in the end it was fascinating to swim with great white sharks in their natural environment.”
It's good to talk.
