EDITOR’S NOTE
Our cover story this issue spotlights Attacq’s latest development, The Mall of Africa. Situated in Waterfall City in Gauteng, the vast shopping complex will stand as the largest single-building retail building on the continent. Attacq’s
CEO Morné Wilken provides insight on the construction of the mega project, who the key tenants are and what the shopping development will bring to Waterfall City and South Africa. The mall itself contains a roof made out of solar panels to provide clean energy, which brings us on to this issue’s in depth interview.
Renewable energy and its contribution to the South African energy mix is on the up. The South African government is driving a ‘Green Economy’ where individuals, businesses and government are incentivised to contribute to a reduction in the use of fossil fuels and unrecyclable waste production.
In this issue ABN spoke to Edna Molewa, the South African Minister for Environmental A airs, to get a grasp of the government initiatives for sustainability in the environment and the key projects involved.
We also have spotlights on Adrian Gardiner’s boutique hotel and conservation group, the Mantis Collection, South Africa’s legendary gardener Keith Kirsten talks about his life and latest business ventures, and we understand what it takes
to run a children’s hospital when we speak to the CEO of Kenya’s Gertrude’s Children Hospital.
We also have an update on the J9 Foundation, the charity foundation formed by South Africa’s iconic former half back Joost van der Westhuizen, and the crucial work they have been doing this year to  ght the debilitating motor neurone disease.
We hope you enjoy this issue and encourage you to connect with us on email, Facebook and Twitter.
