In any case, they received 148 nominations from their readers. Some of the nominations were rather dubious, but I was interested to see that the three that received the most nominations were:
- Mamphela Ramphele - 31 nominations
- Jonathan Jansen - 16 nominations
- Mary Metcalfe - 8 nominations
And I think I agree with those three.
Some of the others may be, but I suspect that some were nominated out of political or religious loyalty.
Can anyone suggest any others, either on The Weekender's list, or others not mentioned?
