Federal Chairperson: DA Youth
This bubbly and well-spoken graduate of
Rhodes University is a prime example of what
Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Helen Zille calls
"growing our own timber".
In 2008 Ntuli graduated from the DA's Young
Leadership programme, which serves as a finishing
school for the best and brightest the party can
find. Two years later 23-year-old Ntuli was elected
to the party's youth leadership - the second in
charge to be exact.
It was an easy choice. As head girl of Wykeham
Collegiate, a private school in Pietermaritzburg,
Ntuli won accolades for public speaking and
leadership and went on to win the local mock junior presidential election in 2004.
While studying politics, psychology and sociology Ntuli founded the DA Student
Organisation in Grahamstown and, soon afterwards, became DA youth chairperson
in KwaZulu-Natal. She is also a debating trainer for loveLife and was chosen as the
Investec Young Women in Finance Graduate in 2009. - Mandy Rossouw
