Mbabane, 21 June, 2021: A quiet presence with a powerful impact, Ncane Maziya will be remembered by her Gender Links (GL) family for the mountains that she moved for gender equality in her home country, Eswatini, and across the Southern African Development Community (SADC).

On learning of her passing away in the early hours of 21 June at the age of 59, GL Chair Emily Brown announced that the reception room in the GL Offices in Johannesburg, South Africa would be renamed the Ncane Maziya Reception Room. “I cannot think of a more fitting tribute, than that the room we first enter as we go to work each day becomes a reminder of this determined and loyal foot solider for gender justice,” she said.   Read the full tribute
