Marlene Kanga wins Order of Australia
It pleases me to inform you that this Saturday is the official Queen’s birthday weekend in Australia and it is when the government announces its various Awards for those who have made a significant contribution to society.
Nowadays they no longer give out knighthoods in Australia (even though they are part of the Commonwealth ) but instead they have something called the Order of Australia.
Here is a link to the Governor General’s list that on Monday 9thJune announced the award of “O of A” on Mrs. Marlene Rustom Kanga. She is the daughter-in-law of the Late Adi Kanga.
Marlene will be made a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) for her contribution to Innovation and Engineering.
The link to the Governor General’s announcement is reproduced below. Please see page 63 for details.
