Congratulations to NMMU Sport Manager (Sport Management Alumnus) and netball player, Zanele Mdodana, who has been selected as one of Mail & Guardian’s 200 Young South Africans – inspiring young people who are making a difference.



Zanele made her Proteas debut in 2005 and went on to represent SA in the under 20 and under 21 national teams, and later in the senior team, of which she was captain as well as vice-captain. In 2012 she captained the Proteas to a 47-43 win over Malawi, which inaugurated South Africa as the top netball team on the African continent. She is currently playing for the South African team competing at the Commonwealth Games and today, earned her 80th cap!


We are so proud of you Zanele.
