South African Actress Nomzamo Mbatha Covers KOKO Magazine Special Issue
We all have women in our lives who have served as either role models or have been an inspiration. We all need people to look up to and take life tips from, and with that in mind, we as an organisation annually choose a ‘Woman of the Year’. We begin the process with a late-September meeting, the nominations are varied and the debates vigorous, never more so than in an era of amazing talents, achievements, excellence in diverse fields and brilliant women who have made a whole lot of positive change on the continent. Our ‘Woman of the Year’ represents not only her trailblazing efforts but more importantly, embodies the hopes and achievements of millions of extraordinary women who make a difference every day across our nations and continent.
