Nomsa Mazibuko

Tsogo Sun Entrepreneur of the Year 2015/2016

In the two years since I met Nomsa Mazibuko, owner of Visit Vakasha Guest Lodge in Emalahleni, Mpumalanga, I have watched her business thrive and flourish and I have seen her develop herself into a powerful business woman in her own right. She is a well-respected member of her commmunity and her business is making significant social and economic impact in tis locale.

When Simon Sinek explained that “Ideas alone dont change the world, ideas that inspire action do,” he could well have been speaking about the Tsogo Sun Entrepreneurs Programme.

It starte as an idea more than a decade ago, and has grown into a successful development ptrogramme supporting hundreds of small businesses in South Africa, inspiring action in industrious entrepreneurs like Nomsa Mazibuko, with the intention of creating a better world.
