On Saturday, South Africa’s newly elected president, Cyril Ramaphosa was inaugurated. However, the day belonged to a young pilot, Major Mandisa Mfeka who stole the headlines as she made history.
Mfeka, 29, became South Africa’s first black female fighter pilot as she led a team flyover to mark President Ramaphosa’s inauguration at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium in Pretoria.
