Min­ing en­tre­pre­neur Daphne Mashile-Nkosi has added the ti­tle of 2015 Africa Fe­male Busi­ness Leader of the Year to her long list of ac­co­lades.

“This award recog­nises ex­cep­tional lead­er­ship and man­age­rial skill in a fe­male busi­ness leader who, in spite of stiff com­pe­ti­tion in a male-dom­i­nated world, has shown re­silience, courage and sagac­ity in build­ing a wor­thy brand,” said the ci­ta­tion.

The ma­jor­ity of the African Lead­er­ship Mag­a­zine’s 480 000 read­ers and 180 000 Face­book fans, not count­ing other plat­forms, voted for the ex­ec­u­tive chair­per­son of Kala­gadi Man­ganese to re­ceive the award.

Dur­ing the same cer­e­mony in Lon­don, Mashile-Nkosi also re­ceived a Spe­cial Com­men­da­tion Award from the Ge­or­gia Leg­isla­tive Black Cau­cus, a US leg­isla­tive body and part­ners of the mag­a­zine on the awards, for help­ing to trans­form the African busi­ness land­scape.
