Destiny Man celebrates the man who went from taxi driver to Telkom's chairman

The May-June 2014 cover of Destiny Man features Jabu Mabuza, the man who wears many hats, both literally and figuratively. Mabuza is the chairman of parastatal, Telkom as well as the chairman for Business Unity South Africa (BUSA). Besides these, he's also non-executive chairman of the Casino Association of South Africa (Casa), non-executive chairman of SA Tourism and deputy chairman of Tsogo Sun. With roles in such diverse industries, it's hard to believe that Mabuza doesn't have a degree and used to be a taxi driver.
The issue also celebrates and unpacks Africa with profiles of African professionals and entrepreneurs who are making a mark, not only in their respective countries, but worldwide.
