Dumisani Mngadi

COO, African Union Foundation

Mngadi boasts a rich history in the academic and development sectors across the African continent and beyond its borders. A conscientious pan-Africanist, he strongly believes in Africa’s ability to find its own solutions and implement these to resolve continental challenges.

Mngadi was an integral part of the establishment of the African Union Foundation and continues to leverage his knowledge and experience to provide oversight of its operations, including programming and management of its projects.

He has his fingers on the pulse when it comes to engaging the private sector and was at the forefront of the successful inaugural African Economic Platform, a platform that brought together African Heads of State, business and academic leaders and youth from the continent to come up with solutions of Africa’s developmental programmes.
