HIGH ACHIEVER: Sakhile Nyoni- Reiling
Harare - A Zimbabwean woman has made aviation history in Botswana, becoming the first female to be appointed general manager of state-owned Air Botswana, PANA reported from here Wednesday.

History-making is not strange for Sakhile Nyoni because in 1988, she became Air Botswana's first female pilot, and gradually rose to her present managerial position.

'I am humbled by the fact that the government through the board that appointed me gave me the opportunity to be general manager of Air Botswana,' she said.

'I am also happy that once again I made history in the aviation industry of Botswana. There are challenges here and there but I believe challenges are part of the solutions,' Nyoni said.

Though Zimbabwean, Nyoni has lived in Botswana most of her life.
