Mzansi elated as African business magnate Sam Matekane bags major Forbes award
In more business news, Briefly News previously reported that Lesotho businessman Sam Matekane has emerged as the face of Africa after he was among the African business leaders honoured at the Forbes Best of Africa Awards.
The entrepreneur was honoured at an opulent ceremony hosted by the Foreign Investment Network in partnership with Forbes Best of Africa. The awards shone a light on the leading figures in business, politics and leadership, among others.
Matekane established the Matekane Group of Companies in 1986 as Matekane Transport and Plant Hire, later evolving into a multi-sector corporation embodying, among others, property development and mining.
Earlier this year, the Lesotho national was reported to have spent between 25 and R30 million to upgrade his country’s laboratory system to test for Covid-19. The businessman's achievement has been lauded on social media.

"Sam Matekane named Forbes 'African Businessman of the Year'. Matekane is the founder of MGC (Matekane Group of Companies), a holdings company founded in 1986 as a Transport and Plant Hire Company and today boasts of estates, government offices, [an] airline and mines."
Briefly News takes a look at the reactions of keen social media users, who doffed their hats to Matekane for his exceptional strides.
