Congratulations Yankho Banda

We Are So Proud of You, Yankho Banda!!!

Congratulations to one of our own, Yankho Banda, for disrupting the status-quo to why the Engineering profession is not registered as a Chapter 9 institution, while a lot of infrastructure projects are implemented by Engineers.

Yankho called on the South African President, Cyril Ramaphosa, and the ANC Leadership to make the environment conducive for Engineers to practice and contribute towards infrastructure development. She said: “Thuma Thina Sizojika Izonto for the economy and the country”. Loosely translated “Send us, we will turn things around for the economy and the country.”

Yankho, a Traffic and Transport Engineer in the Roads and Transport Department was speaking at the ANC Women’s League Presidential Golf Day event held at the Blue Valley Golf & Country Estate, Midrand on Saturday, 07 March 2020 (the day before International Women’s Day). Yankho is currently the National Chairperson of the Consulting Engineers South Africa (CESA) Young Professionals Forum (YPF).
