Born in 1943, ABDUL G.A. JAKHURA joined his father’s family business in 1960 and acquired a stake in Aisha Osman Transport in 1965. He became the Managing Director of Press Transport Ltd in 1975 having merged it with the family business. He established Rab Processors Ltd in 1983.
In the early 1900’s, my father and mother emigrated from Bhanvad, India, to come and settle in the then Nyasaland Protectorate. Born into a large family, I had to shoulder responsibilities very early in life by virtue of my being the eldest son out of 11 children. My formative years were spent at Marist Brothers School, a Roman Catholic Boarding Institution, in Que, the then Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). After completing secondary school, it was only natural that I would be absorbed into my father’s Retail and Wholesale business. ...
The fact that the company has evolved from a small dhall processing company employing 15 members of staff to become a well organised food manufacturing company employing an impressive staff cadre of 1500 people is an example of success that I am happy to commend.

FORMER PRESIDENT OF MALAWI
All my hard work has not gone without recognition. I have received many awards for my hard work. I am sure you will agree with me that this is more than recognition for hard work.
