About this book:

Mteto Nyati knew years ago in Mthatha, working at his mother’s trading store, that he wanted to fix and build things. After completing his studies in Mechanical Engineering at Natal University, he headed for Johannesburg to take up a position at Afrox. He was the only black engineer and the advice he received was ‘don’t mess up’. He didn’t. Today he is one of South Africa’s top CEOs, having steered Microsoft SA and MTN SA out of troubled times. He is currently guiding the transition of Altron.
 

Readers say

‘I have known and admired Baba Mteto Nyati’s career progression. His determination and dedication to succeed show that he, more than most, is an embodiment of: God has given his toughest battles to his strongest soldiers.’

– Bonang Mohale


‘Mteto’s personal story is remarkable. This country needs many Mteto’s and I salute him for his contribution.’

– Professor Nick Binedell, GIBS


‘Once in a while, one meets an individual and decides to break all protocols and take a chance. This is what happened when I met Mteto in the nineties. I saw real raw black African talent and made a case to take a professional risk – AND BOY, DID IT PAY OUT!’

– Mpho Letlape
