Ambassador Mninwa Mahlangu

South African Embassy in the United States of America

Mninwa J. Mahlangu, South African Ambassador to the United States, has been invited to be the guest speaker for the Spring 2017 Southern University Baton Rouge Commencement, Friday, May 12, 9:30 a.m., in the F.G.

Ambassador Mahlangu was appointed in October 2014 by the President of South Africa to serve as the South African Ambassador to the United States of America, based in Washington, DC.

Ambassador Mahlangu is one of the leaders who played a critical role in the processes leading up to the first democratic South Africa. Between 1991 and 1994, he was a negotiator at the Congress for Democratic South Africa and the Multiparty Negotiation Forum. In 1993, he became the Co-Chairperson of these bodies. From 1993 to 1994 he was a member of South Africa’s Transitional Executive Council.

Ambassador Mahlangu last visited Southern University, November 19, 2015, and addressed an assembly at the Nelson Mandela School of Public Policy, in the atrium of Rodney G. Higgins Hall.

Special notice about the White House Tours

The Embassy of South Africa cannot arrange tours of the White House for South African citizens. The US Department of State has advised us that, at present access for foreign citizens to White House tours as part of an Embassy-sponsored public tour group, is on hold. We are therefore unable to process any requests at this time.

We will post an update to the website immediately if conditions change.
