The Black Business Council (BBC) would like to congratulate Mondo Mazwai as the first black female Chairperson of the Competition Tribunal following her appointment by President Cyril Ramaphosa.
Mazwai holds an LLB from the University of KwaZulu-Natal and has previously served as National Head of Competition Law at Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyer before joining the Competition Tribunal in 2013.
“Ms Mazwai, who has taken over Norman Manoim, who served as a member for 20 years and as chairperson for the last 10 years, is appropriately skilled with relevant qualifications and experience. It is encouraging to see that women are being considered to hold higher positions of consequence and play a meaningful role in the mainstream economy,” says Kganki Matabane, Black Business Council CEO.
The Black Business Council would like to wish Ms Mazwai well in her endeavours and will offer her our support.
“Her appointment will strengthen the role and work of the tribunal in trying to open the markets to black and new entrants by dismantling monopolies in South Africa,” concludes Matabane.
