I am Mr. Edwin Motsisi, Chairman of the National Energy Committee under the Department of Minerals and Energy,
By virtue of my position, I have access to monies I intend to invest into some very viable business, preferably, I am looking to investing into some very profit oriented businesses, so what I am saying is that I appreciate your position and status and will be very glad if you would guide and direct me as to a business I could invest in for profit making purposes. I would appreciate greatly if you can give me an insight into the business and possibility of nationalizing in your country as we intend doing in the nearest future.
The finance is affordable if only I can be guaranteed of fair-play, equity, transparency and good partnership.
