African Union Commissioner Mhlongo is an avid reader and appreciator of African culture, particularly valuing indigenous languages. His work for the AU centers on bringing those languages to the forefront in business and academic settings. He talks with Frontrunners Innovate Producer, Mary Kurek, and her Co-Host Igweshi Augustine about this work and his unique impact with African Monarchies through the Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Depts in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.  (Note:  Co-Host Igweshi Augustine’s technical difficulties kept him from fully participating.)
