A former political prisoner on Robben Island, and Bishop of Kimberley and Kuruman, Njongonkulu Ndungane succeeded Desmond Tutu as Anglican Archbishop of Cape Town in 1996. In 2006, he launched African Monitor, a pan-African non-profit-making body harnessing the voice of the continent’s civil society in monitoring and promoting the effective implementation of promises made by the international community, and Africa’s own governments, for the continent’s development. Since retiring from the church in 2007 he has been extensively involved in campaigns to abolish the debt of developing countries, combat poverty, tackle HIV and Aids and promote the millennium development goals. Archbishop Ndungane has also served as ”Champion” of the Historic Schools Restoration Project, an initiative aimed at transforming historically significant and under-resourced schools in South Africa into sustainable and inspirational centres of cultural and educational excellence.
