Portrait – Alpesh Patel, Mi-Group

Alpesh Patel was born in the Ugandan bush, had lunch with John Wayne and became a millionaire at 23. In between, he was kicked out his country with only a $100 and a pillow. Now he is the mobile entrepreneur behind Mi-Group.

Alpesh founded Mi-Fone in 2008, after leaving Motorola where he was their Director of Sales in Africa where he placed more than 5 million devices into the continent. Whilst there, he realized that the big brands were missing the point and that ultimately Africa was best served by Africans themselves.

Weeks after she stood down in a controversial election, Joyce Banda opened her heart on corruption, prosecution and why she has no regrets. An amazing person to meet, Banda is full of passion for women rights issues. She exudes authority and power. One of my top people to photograph.

On his first visit to South Africa, Indian tech billionaire and Wipro chairman Azim Premji talked business philanthropy and why SA is in his top five. Premji rarely comes into the media light, but with new investments in SA looming he was in full swing at the JSE. According to the FORBES 2014 rich list he is the 45th richest man in the world with an est net worth of $16.5 billion.
