Safika chairman appointed top advisor to Eastern Cape government

The premier of South Africa’s Eastern Cape province, Oscar Mabuyane, has announced that Safika Holdings chairman, Saki Macozoma has been appointed to a key advisory position in his administration. Macozoma will form part of the premier’s advisory panel on a part-time basis.

The Eastern Cape is South Africa’s second-largest province but also the poorest, in spite of having huge potential in terms of agriculture, tourism, sea cargo and industry.

Macozoma and his fellow appointees Professor Wiseman Nkuhlu and Nomso Kana will advise on strategic planning and ensure government work is properly structured.

Nkuhlu is the Chancellor of the University of Pretoria, Chairman of Rothschild (SA) and a director of companies. Kana works as an entrepreneur in the broadband infrastructure sector. She is a lobbyist for sustainable resource use, and led the South African delegation to the World Sustainability Energy Forum.
