Founded this year by T4 Education and HP, in collaboration with Intel and Microsoft, the honour recognised the University of Cape Town Vice-Chancellor for her “impact, leadership, and advocacy in the field of African education”.
Oprah, 68, said: “Congratulations to you, Professor, on being named the winner of the Africa Education Medal. It’s an honour recognising leaders who are making a positive impact on education.
