Commenting on her appointment, SANRAL Southern Region’s Regional Manager, Mbulelo Peterson said, “SANRAL Southern Region is fortunate to have Ms. Ben-Mazwi join our team as she has extensive knowledge in Supply Chain Management.”
“Before joining the Southern Region she was an Assistant Manager (demand) and later acting Supply Chain Manager in the Department of Roads and Public Works Chris Hani Region, which is experience that would add value to SANRAL” Peterson said.

“My position at the Department of Roads and Public Works made me realize my passion for roads and transport. The position I filled, and all those I have filled before gave me enough grounds to be able to be positive I can fulfil my role at SANRAL,” said Ben-Mazwi.
“I am excited to be working on tenders so I can have that interface with people as I also have a passion for people. I look forward to using my experience to provide strategic guidance to the region,” she concluded.
