‘power is provoking positive impact’

METHODOLOGY: In compiling this list, our research looked at female African leaders across sectors and industries, as well as government agencies and non-profit institutions. We sifted through other recognition lists and nominations that came in from our editorial teams across Africa, and applied our own metrics of leadership, influence, consistency and most importantly, impact. We also engaged an external panel of judges, who are experts in their fields: Melanie Verwoerd (politics), Ayesha Kajee (development and governance), Nick Said (sports), Gina Schoeman (economics), Yasmin Furmie (media) and Ayanda Myataza (business). For every woman featured in this compilation, there are many more making history as we speak and will no doubt grace the list and these pages in years to come.

the french silhouette in africa

WITH JUST $2,700 IN her bank, transferred from her savings account in France, Zazi Nyandeni returned home to the South African fashion industry with her freshly-minted talent. But if Paris was school, Johannesburg proved to be university. Qualifying was never easy.

an evening when the stars descended with racquets

THIS IS THE STORY OF HOW ON A BALMY summer day in February, a billionaire, a late-night talk show host and two sporting legends came together for the mother of all tennis matches in The Mother City. In the coastal city of Cape Town in South Africa, a sea of admirers at Cape Town Stadium on February 7 waited with bated breath for the men with racquets they had booked tickets months in advance to see. And this for an exhibition match titled, ‘The Match In Africa’, which drew a record crowd of 51,945, all for a good cause. Security was tight. And the crowds were building up. And in they walked, for the practice session first. Roger Federer appeared from the players’ tunnel, wearing his Uniqlo black shirt and shorts, a white headband…

the coronavirus threat to the tokyo 2020 olympic games

The deadly coronavirus that has spread through China and beyond has emerged as a big threat to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games just months out from their July 24 start. By mid February, there had been nearly 60 confirmed cases in Japan, leading to major concerns that the flood of athletes and spectators from around the world who will descend on Tokyo could be in danger. "I am extremely worried that the spread of the infectious disease could throw cold water on the momentum toward the Games," Toshiro Muto, chief executive of the Tokyo Olympic organizing committee, told Japanese broadcaster NHK. "I hope that it will be stamped out as soon as possible. “We need to make sure the public, the athletes and stakeholders feel safe and secure. We have to be objective…
