Fresh from the frontline of Tunisia’s revolution, will others find his passion for democracy inspiring or provocative?
Dr Zied Mhirsi, a media entrepreneur and public health expert from Tunisia, is the founder of Tunisia’s first English news website, Tunisia Live.
Based in the capital, Tunis, he leads a team of young journalists, hosts radio shows, writes articles and helps non-governmental organisations.
Having been medically trained, he has also worked on the ground to treat Africa’s biggest public health problems and taboos.
But fresh from the frontline of Tunisia’s revolution, will his fellow Africans find his fire for democracy inspiring or provocative?
Married to singer-songwriter Kesang Marstrand, there are many sides to Zied.
