Mahlangu has been elected as the first female President of the Federation of Africa University Sports (FASU).
She was also the Chairperson of Women’s Football, and is playing a pivotal role in African football. Mahlangu served the country as a Board Member of the 2010 FIFA World Cup, is currently working on CAF and COSAFA events and has always been a patriot for women’s football.

As SAFA, we are delighted to have worked with her where we saw firsthand her dedication, commitment and the drive she has when it comes to sport. We are also happy that she is flying high the flag of South Africa at such an important organisation like the FASU,” said Dr Jordaan.
