The South African Women in Dialogue says it deeply mourns the unexpected passing of one of its founding trustees, Dr. Thandi Ndlovu, who died in hospital on Saturday after a head-on collision while she was on her way to a funeral in Rustenburg in North West.

The organisation says in a statement Ndlovu was known as a committed feminist activist, a military commander, a medical practitioner and businesswoman and owner of Motheo Construction, the largest female-owned construction company in South Africa.

She was nominated as Business Woman of the Year by the Business Woman's Association of South Africa in 2013, and at the time of her death, she was gracing the front cover of the August 2019 edition of Forbes Africa Magazine.
