A South African business executive reached the top of Mount Everest on Thursday in what is believed to be the first summit of the world’s highest mountain by a black African woman. Khumalo’s Summits with a Purpose expedition organiser said she was the first black African woman to reach the top of Everest. In 2017, strong winds and frostbite forced Khumalo to give up on Everest, just metres from the summit. Ms Khumalo is on a quest to conquer the highest peaks on each continent. Two Indian climbers have died and a Chilean is missing on Mount Kanchenjunga, the world’s third-highest mountain, expedition organisers said.
