Episode 4: Behind the scenes
A group task reveals how the young Africans handle precious resources.
Before leaving for London, Nigerian managing director Amy Jadesimi reflects on her emotional meeting with Archbishop Desmond Tutu (episode 2) and goes back to the Oxford Debating Union where she first met him, to revisit the moment she first felt a sense of pride as a black woman.
31 Jan 2013
The young leaders arrive in London for the final three days of their coaching, completely in the dark about a mystery task awaiting them.
They discover it’s a cookery task, and they must barter with each other to get the right ingredients to make an ‘authentic’ African meal.
The kitchen erupts in chaos as the leaders realise they do not have the essentials: salt, tomatoes and perhaps the most precious of resources - oil.
So, when some are given the ingredients in secret, will they squander or share the resources they know the others also need?
An exclusive, no-cameras tour of the House of Lords prompts some intriguing insights about the British aristocracy. But do Tutu’s Children see themselves as an elite?
Six months, 41 sessions and several emotional crises later, the 25 young leaders finally graduate as the Archbishop Desmond Tutu Fellows of 2012.
