Podcast: Sam Motsuenyane Recalls How His Father’s Ambition Inspired Him

A Testament of HopeSam Motsuenyane talked to Ubuntu Radio about his book, A Testament of Hope: The Autobiography of Dr Sam Motsuenyane.

Motsuenyane, who is one of South Africa’s most esteemed business leaders, spoke to JP Louw about his humble beginnings on a farm in Potchefstroom, and recalled how his interest in business arose.

The seventh of eight children, Motsuenyane says it was his father’s indomitable ambition that inspired him to achieve greatness: “I was one of the last children of my father, and probably got more attention at that time from my parents, because most of [my siblings] were not as fortunate as I was to go to school to the same extent. I was lucky that my father, right when I started school, said: ‘I would like you one day to go America and study there.’ And I got inspired by the ambition that my father had for me before I even went to form one [standard seven].”
