On the Summits with Purpose Facebook page, it is being accounted for that Saray N’kusi Khumalo achieved the highest point of the most elevated mountain on the planet at 9am Nepal time (5.15am South African time).

The post says that Khumalo  summitted Mt Kilimanjaro in 2012, raising funds for the Lunchbox Fund.

“The mountaineering passion took hold and she embarked on a journey to climb the highest peak on each continent, not for herself but the education of African children.

“She summitted Mt Elbrus in 2014 and Mt Aconcagua in 2015. She became a Nelson Mandela Libraries ambassador and raised nearly R1m for school libraries. After being on Everest during both the serac fall (2014) and the earthquake (2015), she reached the south summit in 2017.”

Her 2019 return to Everest is in support of the Dr Thandi Ndlovu Foundation.
