THATO KGATLHANYE

IN-STUDIO GUEST: Thato Kgatlhanye (@godsbillionaire on
Instagram, @thatothethinker on Twitter)
We’re still continuing to celebrate and chat to powerful and
successful women who we want to salute and learn from for
Women’s Month. This week, we have a new breed of a business
woman in Africa with us - Thato Kgatlhanye. Still in her 20s, she’s
making massive change in our world through her company,
Rethaka.
Has a BA in Brand Management from VEGA
She was selected for an internship in New York with marketing
guru and American best-selling author Seth Godin in the beginning
of her career
Upon her return, she founded Rethaka at 18, a group of
companies with interests in manufacturing and waste
management. The company is a woman-owned South African
business that is focused on improving the world around it.
Rethaka has won countless awards for its first innovation:
Repurpose Schoolbags, which she started at 21.
The Schoolbags are an environmentally-friendly innovation made
from ‘upcycled’ plastic shopping bags with built-in solar technology
that charges up during the day and transforms into a light at night.
The initiative targets school children in underprivileged
communities and looks at addressing a number of problems.
These are solar powered schoolbags, of which over 10,000 have
been distributed across the African continent.
From a young age she did realise she wanted to have a positive
impact on the society that surrounded her, a trait she owes to her
upbringing and particularly her mother.

Her pursuit to do work that matters led her to form the Seven
Twelve Group which houses the Rethaka Group and The
Threaded Group.

These are a collection of companies interested in resourcing
Africa's Future with operations in textile manufacturing, tech,
fashion and lifestyle industries.

THEMBALETHU ZULU

Big Wkndr Story: Women’s Month - Thembalethu Zulu
(Sowetan) on the line
What is the true meaning behind Women's Month? Well, according
04:00

to Editor of Sowetan Magazine - the verdict is still out.
Thembalethu Zulu thinks the country pretends to care and protect
society's women, and that women's month sucks and is an insult.
In a recent opinion piece she wrote titled, "Stop insulting women
with this month-long farce", Themba says: To suggest that a month
is sufficient to highlight, and in some way placate some of the ills
the world has and continues to visit on women, is ridiculous.
To prove her point, she references harrowing statistics that show
how much still needs to be done for the safety of women.
For example, for 365 days of the year, women continue to be
victimised, paid less, maimed and killed by those they trust.
According to Statistics SA, women were the greater percentage of
victims of theft of personal property and fraud, also making up
68.5% of the sexual offences victims.
According to the same report, the murder rate of women increased
by 117% between 2015 and 2016/17.
Only 44 in every 100 employed individuals are women, according
to labour data released for the second quarter of 2017, occupying
a mere 44% of skilled posts, which includes managers. Shockingly,
this figure has remained the same since 2002.
Themba concludes the article by saying South Africa needs to
"...stop trying to razzle dazzle us with a month-long "celebration"
and actually start doing things that matter…"
