Kaizer M. Nyatsumba

The Official Website


Hi. Welcome to Kaizer M. Nyatsumba’s official website – and thank you for your visit.

This site is about Kaizer Nyatsumba as a person. It is not a professional profile or a profile of his company, KMN Investment Holdings (Pty) Ltd. The former can be accessed on his LinkedIn profile and the latter on www.kmnholdings.co.za.

Why a personal website, you ask. Well, in an era when information on people is so easily accessible, with much of it beyond the control of the individuals concerned, Kaizer considers it important to ensure that he takes ownership of information on himself in order to ensure that it is contemporary and accurate. He also wants to share some of his reflections on and analyses of some important matters of public interest.

Although a public figure, Kaizer is nevertheless a private person. He does not tweet or have a Facebook account, and he has never done so. Whenever he has felt strongly enough to take a view on any matter, he has done so in public, mostly through opinion pieces in the media.

This website, therefore, will also eschew the private, and will focus, instead, on the public. It is about the individual, Kaizer Nyatsumba, and not about his family.

Thanks again for your visit.
