Oor hierdie boek:

Mteto Nyati het reeds as skoolseun in sy ma se winkel in Mthatha geweet dat hy dinge wil regmaak en bou. Hy voltooi sy studies, sê nee vir ’n Rhodes-beurs en gaan werk in Johannesburg vir Afrox. Hier is hy die enigste swart ingenieur en al advies wat hy kry, is: “Moenie droogmaak nie.” Hy het nie, en is vandag een van Suid-Afrika se topsakelui. 

Lesers sê

‘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
