A Z Madi

Alpheus Zulaphi

Nickname: 'Bra Zula'

Visionary & community builder

Currently resides in: Gauteng, South Africa

Born 14-09-1946 in Johannesburg South South Africa

One of the first African Marketing Managers, Stellenbosch Farmers Wineries. Pioneer in black business advancement as a founding director of Mzamo Moleko Botlestores and Releke Sizame Supermarkets (JV with Score Supermarkets in 1984).
The Mzamo Moleko initiative was a strategic association with SA Breweries, where Mr Madi led the team in negotiations with Norman Adami. The same was done with Releke Sizame where Mr Madi was Managing Director of Releke Sizame and where the partnership was secured under his stewardship with then MD of Score Supermarkets, Mr Carlos Dos Santos.

These transactions were the first recorded under significant Black empowerment by these leading listed companies of the day.

Since my retirement, I have devoted my additional time to community development initiatives with Social Development organisations like POWA amongst others.

He is the current Chairman of Ikhabe Capital Investments and Trustee of Mkhandela Share Trust
