Kholofelo Maponya is chairman of rapidly inuential investment holding group, Matome Maponya Investments (“MMI”). The group has its origins in Polokwane, Limpopo and has signicant investment holdings in key sectors of the South African economy, notably in agriculture, property development and financial services.

The MMI group invests in sectors where the country has deep social challenges and uses its resources to pursue investment opportunities where it can have a deep social footprint. Mr Maponya is a talented businessman who was forced to give up his accounting studies at a young age and to fast track his foray into the business sector due to the illness and subsequent passing of his father, renowned businessman, Matome Maponya.

He successfully managed to transition strategic family holdings in farming into property development enterprises, and nancial service holdings. Today MMI is a strategic shareholder in key South African businesses such as Afgri Limited, Daybreak Poultry (formerly Afgri Poultry) and SA Home Loans, where Mr Maponya is an active board member providing strategic input to these entities.
