PRESIDENT ZUMA TO CHARLIZE THERON: I'M PROUD OF YOU
The ceremony was on January 22 where she was awarded for her humanitarian work to fight HIV/AIDS, TB and Malaria for the Global Fund.
President Zuma in a statement said, "We are proud of our Charlize. She has succeeded in an extremely competitive environment and is a visible and hardworking ambassador for her country. We wish her success in every venture she undertakes. I assured her that South Africans love her and wish her all the best."
Last year the award went to another South African, Yvonne Chaka Chaka.
