Anton rupert
I'm sure I'll not be the first or last to pay respects to Anton Rupert, but suffice to say he was a pioneer who put South African business firmly on the global platform. His skills not only forged his own business empire, but also initiatives that changed the lives of others, such as the WWF, the Small Business Development Corporation and the Peace Parks Foundation. His passing yesterday leaves a large hole in South African business. May he rest in peace.
