SATY-2015-Dlamini-Zuma(1)Just two months after AU Chairperson, Dr Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, was honoured with an eThekwini Living Legends award, Dr Zuma’s been recognised as ANN7’s South African of the Year! The awards’ ceremony took place last week in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, where Dr Zuma was presented with a cheque for R250 000, the full amount of which she will be donating to the Thusanani Foundation. Thusanani is a youth-led education initiative based in Johannesburg which aims to bridge the education information gap between rural and urban children. The Foundation was established in 2011 with a mandate to break the cycle of poverty through ensuring access and success in institutions of higher learning – something which has particular relevance given the student protest action that we’ve seen across the country in the past week.

So a massive congratulations to 2015 eThekwini Living Legend Dr Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, you continue to make us proud!
