Last month, the regional rounds of Sawipa 2019 took place in KwaZulu-Natal, the Western Cape and Gauteng. The nominees in each category were recognised and the regional winners, who are now national finalists, were announced.
“The SA Women in Property Awards, sponsored by Airports Company South Africa (Acsa), is a platform established by the WPN to recognise and celebrate the achievements of women in various segments of the South African property sector,” said Nonhlanhla Mayisela, National Chair of the WPN and CEO of Izandla Property.
