First black African woman makes Everest summit

A South African business executive reached the top of Mount Everest yesterday in what is believed to be the first summit of the world’s highest mountain by a black African woman. Saray Khumalo, 47, reached the top of the 8,848-metre (29,029-foot) mountain after three previous bids were thwarted by bad weather, injury and tragedy. Nepal’s Tourism Department confirmed that Khumalo had made the summit but had no record on whether she was the first black African woman. Meanwhile, two Indian climbers have died and a Chilean is missing on Mount Kanchenjunga, the world’s third-highest mountain, expedition organisers said yesterday.
