2021 Ministerial Award recipient and South African women’s hockey goalkeeper Phumelela Mbande has received recognition for her outstanding achievements both on and off the field as she features on the M&G 200 Young South Africans list.

Mbande has been recognised for balancing the demands of her successful hockey career with a fledgling career in auditing.

She is currently the co-captain of South Africa’s women’s hockey team. They competed at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, where she was also South Africa’s flag-bearer.

Transformation in South African hockey is one of Mbande’s great passions.

“I come from very humble beginnings, and hockey funded a big part of my tuition through bursaries. I feel it necessary to continue to advocate that other players should be given such life-changing opportunities,” Mbande revealed in the official list unveiling.
