The aim of creating 130 000 jobs in the legal cannabis industry in South Africa isn’t the only point on the agenda for Sibusiso Xaba, the co-founder and chief executive of Africa Cannabis Advisory Group.
After leaving his investment banking job in London to move back to South Africa and start a business, Xaba wanted to build an organisation that plays an instrumental role in helping South Africa to realise its potential in the growing cannabis industry.
The goal of the Africa Cannabis Advisory Group is to implement affordable healthcare and climate-friendly industrialisation, which would mean that ordinary South Africans could play a major role in securing a sustainable future.
Xaba says that he is “most excited about being part of a growing movement of young entrepreneurs who are building the Africa of tomorrow, an Africa that reflects the potential of its people; an Africa we can be proud of”.
“I would like to see the legal cannabis industry in South Africa bring hope and opportunity to some of the most neglected communities in the country.”
