The August/September 2020 issue of FORBES AFRICA offers lessons on entrepreneurship from the man who created a pioneering East African bank taking it to billion-dollar success. James Mwangi talks about the ‘The Mwangi Model’ of progress and inclusion and the resilience needed to run a business in the current economic downturn. He shares more tips for success for young entrepreneurs. Also in this issue, more stories on how Covid-19 is impacting Africa. As we celebrate Women’s Month in South Africa in August, we also ask the question ‘Is Covid-19 a gender pandemic’ as it continues to exacerbate inequalities. We then go over to Los Angeles to speak with the mother of one of the richest men on the planet. Maye Musk, whose son is South African-born tech billionaire Elon Musk, is a supermodel and author with a new book. She shares insights on Elon’s Mars ventures and how she raised three successful children. Also in this issue, more from East Africa, including all the new digital developments and innovations coming out of Tanzania and Rwanda. How is tourism reawakening in the hill country? Also read up on how Pfizer is fast-tracking its Covid-19 vaccine for the world. All this and more with our regular features including profiles and Q&As; with corporate titans from around the world.
