Prime Minister of Barbados, Mia Amor Mottley has been announced by the Nelson Mandela Foundation as the keynote speaker for this year’s Nelson Mandela Annual Lecture.
The lecture will be held in KwaZulu-Natal.
Prime Minister Mottley follows in the footsteps of UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, and former US President, Barack Obama who have all delivered the prestigious lecture in the past.
The Nelson Mandela Foundation says the impact of her work became significant following the devastating floods in the Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal.
The Barbadian leader was recently named a Champion of the Earth by the United Nations Environmental Programme for her work in raising the alarm on the challenges the climate change crisis poses on developing states.
The lecture will take place in November this year.
