The Most Reverend Njongonkulu Winston Hugh Ndungane FKC, was the Archbishop of Cape Town and Primate of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa.

Archbishop Ndungane decided to enter the church during his three-year sentence on Robben Island as a political prisoner in the early 1960s. In 1975 Ndungane left South Africa for King's College London where he earned first a Bachelor of Divinity degree, then a Master of Divinity, concurrently working as a curate in London.

He went on to serve as Bishop of Kimberley and Kuruman from 1991 to 1996, and subsequently served as Archbishop of Cape Town from 1996 to 2007.

In 2006, he founded African Monitor, a pan-African non-profit organization that monitors both the fulfillment of the promises of both aid-giving and aid-receiving countries.
