It is up to us to take up the cudgels to unearth pearls of wisdom from other great Africa Leaders.” (𝗗𝗿 𝗥𝗲𝘂𝗲𝗹 𝗞𝗵𝗼𝘇𝗮, Former Chairman Nedbank, Institute of Directors, NEPAD Business Council)
"Using the analytical tools contained in the passages taken from The IziCwe Code, we can say that the brand image of a democratic South Africa conveys a credible promise of vibrant and limitless possibilities for a better life for all … When our country meets this expectation, we will be able further to build our brand image, enlarging the ‘corner of the consumer’s mind’, that constitutes ‘the most valuable real estate in the world.’ “𝗣𝗿𝗲𝘀𝗶𝗱𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝗧𝗵𝗮𝗯𝗼 𝗠𝗯𝗲𝗸𝗶, South Africa, Letter to the ANC: The New South Africa)
