I’m writing this column with the assistance of Amahle Maloi, a grade 11 student at St Mary’s Diocesan School for Girls in Kloof, KwaZulu-Natal, after reading Business Day’s editorial on Bonang Mohale’s achievements as CEO of Business Leadership SA (BLSA) (“Mohale’s legacy of bravery shows business as a force for good (https://www.businesslive.co.za/bd/opinion/editorials/2019-07-03-editorial-bonang-mohales-legacy-of-bravery-shows-business-as-a-force-for-good/)”, July 3). We decided to record what we think Busisiwe Mavuso should do to fill Mohale’s big shoes. 

The SA economic environment of low economic growth, with a possible recession in the first half of 2019 and rise in the ratio of government debt to GDP, requires business to lead SA’s economic recovery. This plan should include measures to achieve rapid economic growth while focusing on the key socioeconomic problems that plague SA.
