ANC Gauteng Province congratulates it's PEC Member Comrade Ntombi Mekgwe for winning a top women award.

The African National Congress (ANC) in Gauteng congratulates Comrade Ntombi Mekgwe for emerging as a winner in the Standard Bank Top Women Awards under the Top Gender Empowered Public Sector Leader category.

The award is an affirmation of the quality and depth of women leaders within the ANC in Gauteng who continue to serve tirelessly in various capacities across many fields, whether it be public or private sector, academia, business etc.

Held annually, the awards recognise those who have played an active role in redefining the role of women across sectors. It is one of South Africa’s most prestigious gender-empowerment events.

Mekgwe, who received her accolade at a ceremony held in Emperors Palace on Thursday, 15 August, is currently the Speaker of the Gauteng Provincial Legislature and serves as a member of the ANC Gauteng Province’s Provincial Executive Committee and the Provincial Working Committee.

Armed with a wealth of experience in the public sector, comrade Ntombi is a seasoned activist who has close to 40 years experience serving in various structures of our movement during the difficult period of apartheid and in democratic South Africa. She is an ardent advocate of women’s rights who is always fighting for the empowerment of women across sectors of society.
