The appointment of Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka as the head of UN Women, the global agency for women empowerment, has been hailed by the Durban Chamber of Commerce and Industry as another South African success in the sphere of gender equity and human rights.

A former South African Deputy President – in fact, as such, the highest ranking woman in the history of our country - Ms Mlambo-Ngcuka, has joined Navi Pillay, the current High Commissioner for Human Rights, and Geraldine Fraser-Moleketi, a director in the UN’s Bureau for Development Policy, in leading international positions.

  • 1. MEDIA RELEASE CHAMBER APPLAUDS IMPORTANT UNITED NATIONS APPOINTMENT The appointment of Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka as the head of UN Women, the global agency for women empowerment, has been hailed by the Durban Chamber of Commerce and Industry as another South African success in the sphere of gender equity and human rights. A former South African Deputy President – in fact, as such, the highest ranking woman in the history of our country - Ms Mlambo-Ngcuka, has joined Navi Pillay, the current High Commissioner for Human Rights, and Geraldine Fraser-Moleketi, a director in the UN’s Bureau for Development Policy, in leading international positions. Akash Singh, the President of the Durban Chamber, congratulated Mlambo-Ngcuka on her appointment, saying that: “It is an appointment which reflects the esteem in which she is held and the quality of her extensive work in the promotion of women empowerment. At the same time,” he said, “our country’s commitment to women’s rights has been justifiably recognized. The business community takes note of the importance of promoting the appointment of women into positions of high responsibility where they perform meritoriously and bring a complementary and enriched dimension to the art and skill of leadership.” The Chamber is confident that the new Head of UN Women will fill the role with great distinction and make a significant impact on women empowerment.
