Johannesburg, 30 September 2002 - Harmony`s chairman, Mr Adam Fleming, today

"Harmony could not be more pleased that two such capable people have agree to   
join our board`, said Adam.                                                     
Nolitha Fakude is the Managing Director of the Black Management Forum (BMF). She

In 2001 Nolitha took up the position at the BMF where she oversaw the delivery  
of the organisation`s strategies and objectives and gave guidance and support to
the regional offices with respect to their operational plans. Her role includes 
stakeholder and relationship management with BMF members, corporate members,

are confident that both will bring valuable strengths to the Harmony board, and 
we are proud to have them join the company," said Bernard Swanepoel, chief
