The former glorious Public Protector, Thuli Madonsela, continues to lead by example, and she inspire hope in many South Africans even after leaving office. On Women's Day, she conquered Mount Kilimanjaro together with Lexis Nexis members, and Nelson Mandela Foundation CEO Sello Hatang.

The climb was under the theme "Climbing for Dignity and Social Justice".

It was part of the TrekforMandela initiative, which is in partnership with Caring4Girls, a programme which supports young women by raising funds for sanitary pads. Madonsela, through her foundation ThuMa, said the biggest lesson she learnt was to "conquer the mountain within us" in pursuit of social justice and by doing this, inspire young women to do the same.

"The biggest lessons were by far conquering the mountain within us, and realising the strength and courage one can master when focusing on the commitments we made to serving these girls in order for them to be able to conquer their own mountains".

Although many have congratulated her, she took to Twitter to attribute her success to mountaineer, Sibusiso Vilane, who led the trip.

Mount Kilimanjaro, with its three volcanic cones, is a dormant volcano in Tanzania. It is the highest mountain in Africa, with its summit about 4,900 metres from its base, and 5,895 metres above sea level. The first people known to have reached the summit of the mountain were Hans Meyer and Ludwig Purtscheller, in 1889. The mountain is part of Kilimanjaro National Park and is a major climbing destination. The mountain has been the subject of many scientific studies because of its shrinking glaciers and disappearing ice fields.
