Entrepreneurs: Johannes le Roux and Inus Smuts — hangover-free G&T

An alcohol-free gin and tonic developed by two local entrepreneurs sounds like the ideal accompaniment to a business lunch.

South Africans may be very fond of alcohol, but this hasn’t stopped entrepreneurs from looking for alternatives. Enter The Duchess, a brand that is described as the world’s first nonalcoholic and sugar-free gin and tonic (G&T). The SA-crafted drink has sold 500,000 bottles in the less than two years since it was created. Distilled by Johannes le Roux and Inus Smuts, the beverage is produced in Cape Town and is available in stores such as Makro, Spar and Pick n Pay. But it was online retailer Yuppiechef that gave The Duchess its first retail platform, in late 2016.

Innovating Past Our Visible Selves (Speech)

Geci Karuri-Sebina speaks on "Innovating Past Our Visible Selves" 

Good evening, Dumelang, Saninbonani, Molweni, Avuxeni, Ndaa.
…But since my vocabulary and time are both limited, please accept that I see and recognise you all.
- Lord Williams, Master of Magdalene College
- Corinne Lloyd, the Development Director of Magdalene College
- Chris von Christierson, Mandela Magdalene Memorial Foundation
- Allen Zimbler, Archbishop Tutu Leadership Programme
- Scholars and alumni of the Magdalene College
- Other Esteemed Guests and Friends;

It is a real honour for me to be here, speaking to you this evening:
I was asked to speak here as a young leader. I am not sure that I’m all that young any more (even though we seem to have rather flexible limits to our definition of “youth” in SA!), but I am at least still young enough to have been excited about this invitation.


When you are approached with an amazing opportunity to speak on a platform such as this – with the brilliance of the present company, a world-leading university with a history of over 800 years, and a platform carrying the lofty name of our very own hero and global icon Madiba – one experiences at first a great excitement, quickly followed by a looming horror. For me, the excitement manifested in a cocky and prompt acceptance to speak, and a great clarity about all the very, very clever things I would want to say. But then reality sinks soon after… For me, the horror that followed unfolded in a process not dissimilar to the 5 stages of grieving: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and, ultimately, acceptance.
