Durban, South Africa •• Dec. 13, 2000 •• SolarQuest® iNet News Service •• I'm Zanele Zungu, 23-years old final year journalism student at M L Sultan Technikon in Durban, currently a general news reporter on freelance basis at Independent Newspapers, the Daily News, Durban-South Africa.

Before I joined the Daily News I was involved at one of the community radio stations on voluntary basis to compile and read news bulletin. Well I was born and raised in KwaZulu-Natal province.

Attending this conference has broadened my knowledge regarding the energy sector. The most challenging aspects so far are the issues facing women in the sector.

Their involvement in the decision making process, health risk,
etc., discussions made it clear that this aspect leaves so much to be desired and has higlighted the plight women are still facing.

It is clear that women in the past had earned themselves some recognition in some quotas but there is still a long way to go and they are still stumbling along the path.
