Thando Hlongwane

Thando Hlongwane (Deputy Head Boy and RCL Chairman 2015) went on to study Commerce at UCT succeeding his matriculation, whilst also being a Candidate Fellow of the Allan Gray Orbis Foundation, an organisation dedicated to producing the next generation of high impact entrepreneurs. Since then, Thando has been at the forefront of starting up and sustaining successful businesses, mostly relating to the fields of Finance and Information Technology, something not only astounding in itself but made even more significant by the fact that he is one of the youngest trailblazers in these fields.

Most recently in his exciting entrepreneurial journey, and probably one of the most impressive thus far, Thando made it as a finalist for the Anzisha Prize for Africa’s Young Entrepreneur of the Year, one of the most prestigious entrepreneurial awards on the continent. He was one of 20 finalists from all over Africa to attend the Anzisha’s annual event and present his business model for his business Zaio, which, succinctly, is an online school for software developers.

At this event, Thando happened to run into Samkelo Ntetha (RCL Chairman 2017) who is now a student at the African Leadership Academy, an affiliate of Anzisha and an extremely progressive educational institution focused on producing great African leaders.

It is great to see our Old Boys doing such great things and representing DHS at such high levels. Thando continues to make the school proud and doesn’t show any sign of slowing down anytime soon.
