Kuseni Dlamini: “The world is not waiting for South Africa”
Our guest this week is the Chairman of two JSE-listed companies, Massmart and Aspen Pharmacare
Kuseni Dlamini is not afraid to think big for South Africa.
Despite its current woes, for example, he says “Eskom should be a global energy giant, that can go and build power plants in England.”
And he wants South African companies to try to design products for the whole world, not just the local market.
In a wide-ranging conversation, we look at how South Africa can unlock the talents within, creating more black and woman-owned businesses.
Dlamini sees this as a positive way of countering the critique — from Julius Malema and others — that white-owned capital is still running the show in South Africa.
