Video: Wiseman Nkuhlu Stresses the Importance of Small Businesses Like Epainette Mbeki’s

Wiseman NkuhluWiseman Nkuhlu spoke to Leanne Manas on Morning Live about the late Epainette Mbeki, the mother of former president Thabo Mbeki, who passed away on 7 June, 2014, at the age of 98.

Nkuhlu, whose life is documented in Luvuyo Wotshela’s new book, Wiseman Nkuhlu: a life of purpose, was economic advisor to Thabo Mbeki. As a former auditor and member of The National African Federated Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Nkuhlu says he learnt how vital businesses like Ma-Mbeki’s were to poor communities.

“To me, the fact that she chose to live in a rural setting and work with rural women was really special,” Nkuhlu says. “Her presence and her style of humility enabled her to reach out to the people.”
