Astonishing Achievements, Dr Phosa
Dr Mathews Phosa and Mrs Yvonne Phosa at the African Achievers Awards 2016 in Abuja, Nigeria
The Cottondale team wishes to acknowledge and commemorate the tremendous achievements Dr Mathews Phosa was honoured for recently. Dr Phosa attended the African Achiever Awards (AAA) in Abuja, Nigeria on Saturday, 9 July 2016 where he received two prestigious awards: the “Excellence in Leadership” award in recognition of his exemplary leadership in both politics and business and the “Life Time Achievement award” for his role during the struggle against apartheid and for his role in democracy. He dedicated this award to the late Honourable Nelson Mandela. Dr Phosa scooped a further award at the 8th edition of the African Women in Leadership Organisation (AWLO) Conference in Washington DC, USA on 20 August 2016 when he became the first man to be presented with the AWLO 2016 ‘African Man of the Year’ award. This was in recognition of his tireless efforts in showcasing and supporting the creativity of African women and his leadership qualities, which have helped in the development of men and women in Africa. We are very proud and honoured to be associated with a man of Dr Phosa’s stature.
“ It is a great honour for the Schutte family and Cottondale Game Ranch to
announce as opening news for 2016 our joint venture with Dr Mathews Phosa.”
The Cottondale Game Ranch in Limpopo and Dr Mathews Phosa recently joined forces in the scarce game industry. Dr Phosa, a well-known attorney, was the first Premier of Mpumalanga under the leadership of former president Nelson Mandela. He’s also a reckoned industrialist, business investor, financial consultant, philanthropist and author of Chants of Freedom: Poems Written in Exile and Deur die oog van ’n naald.
Cottondale and Dr Phosa’s first joint venture consists of sable antelope, golden wildebeest and colour variant impala and will be expanded to include buffalo, roan antelope and other species at a later stage. This partnership aims to engage influential leaders locally and abroad and to play an active role in establishing a platform for the resettlement and sustainable conservation of superior African fauna throughout southern Africa to guarantee the prosperity of this fauna for future generations.
