- The Department of Mineral Resources and Energy (DMRE) family, including our State-Owned Entity’s, has learnt with profound shock and sadness of the untimely passing of Ms Princess Ntombifuthi Ntuli, CEO of SAWEA.
Ms Ntuli played a major role in the energy sector, particularly with regards our departmental, national and global agenda on renewable energy. Upon her appointment in 2019 to the position of SAWEA CEO, she hit the tarmac running and made an immediate impact on the sector.
The DMRE and SAWEA have lost a visionary leader on whose shoulders we had vested the hope that she would continue to grow her contribution to the sector, as she worked towards the curbing of global warming through the promotion of renewable energy programmes, and wind energy in particular.
On behalf of the Department of Mineral Resources and Energy family we extend our heart-felt condolences to Ms Ntuli’s family, and in particular her children. We also extend our condolences to Ms Ntuli’s colleagues at the South African Wind Energy Association, and sector who worked with her over the years. We pray for divine strength for all as we mourn and bid farewell to one whose life was well lived and is gone too soon.
