The prestigious African Leadership Magazine has conferred a business excellence award on South African based Malawian president of Shepherd Bushiri Investments (SBI) Shepherd Bushiri and also inducted him in Africa’s CEO Hall of Fame for the class of 2018.
The ceremony, which drew various government heads and bussiness leaders across Africa, was held Saturday night at Sandton Convention Centre in Johanesburg, South Africa.
Apart from the award, the UK-based and highly circulating pan-African magazine has also dedicated it’s February edition to profiling Bushiri’s bussiness story with a six page cover story.
