Actor and human rights activist Nomzamo Mbatha has launched an award ceremony to honor and empower women in business.

"It is my greatest honour and greatest privilege to announce the Nomzamo Lighthouse Foundation empowering her Women In Business Awards," Mbatha said in a video on social media.

The awards, a partnership between her foundation and Hollywood Foundation, will not only honour 9 August 1956 but also the legacy of women's month.


"We are taking an army of women with us," she said in the brief video. She added that the women who met the criteria could enter the competition themselves or be entered by people who thought they deserved it.

Entries in the competition opened on 3 August and close on 17 August 2022.
