Cape Town - Former parliamentary leader of the Democratic Alliance, Lindiwe Mazibuko, will not be returning to South African politics for at least another year.

She announced yesterday on Twitter that she is returning to the United States as one of six resident fellows at Harvard’s Institute of Politics.

Mazibuko, who left her place in Parliament as leader of the official opposition for the lecture halls of Harvard University, will fly back to the United States next month.

She recently obtained a Masters degree in public administration from Harvard. 

“I am thrilled to announce that I will be joining Harvard’s Institute of Politics in September 2015 as a Fall Resident Fellow,” she said on Twitter.

She also presented a radio programme, #AskLindiwe, on KFM yesterday and this afternoon was hosting the Drive Time show on Power FM.

In a statement, Harvard University welcomed the members of the Fall 2015 Resident Fellows.

“We welcome all the members. This is a dynamic group of people,” Maggie Williams, director of the Institute of Politics at Harvard, said.

Mazibuko will, in her new role, encourage students and university staff to make a difference in society through their studies and she will act as a mentor for students who are struggling.
