"It is a non-partisan programme that will do leadership development, public purpose, ethics, values and interactions between young people and their elders in politics. It's a programme designed for young people and women, in particular, who have always wanted to run for office, who have always wanted to serve in government, but hadn't figured out how to make those entry points," Mazibuko told News24.
Mazibuko also shared her view on some of the crises facing the DA, the party she still votes for.
De Lille has dragged the DA to court for ousting her from the party.
"I find it difficult to believe that some of it is not about gender and race... [that] part of it is not about this notion that a woman must know her place. And that makes me angry, it makes me sad, it's a great disappointment," Mazibuko said.
"I love the EFF style of politics, I wish it had more substance under the hood. It's like a Ferrari, but the engine is like a Golf engine," she said.
"What I love is how they are making education fashionable again. I love how their leadership is unapologetically young. I worry about the habits that may have been formed under the ANC that may have carried over, but on the whole they are an incredibly exciting development and look, the DA would not be in government in municipalities without the EFF. It's an exciting development for politics.
"I just look forward to a time its policies become more fleshed out," she added.
