Pule Mabe

Treasurer general, ANC Youth League

The 29-year-old treasurer general and chairperson of the ANC Youth League's investment arm Lembede Investment Holdings, Pule Mabe is also an established businessman. He's a shareholder in TaxiProp, the retail development arm of the South African National Taxi Association and owns KG Media, publishers of a public transport newspaper called Hamba Nathi. Charged with keeping the ANC Youth League's finances in order, Mabe started in politics as a member of the Congress of South African Students at the age of 15. Besides being strict with the purse, the youth league also relies on Mabe to talk for the young people, thanks to his experience as a spin doctor. When he got bored with journalism, he worked as media liaison officer for the Gauteng provincial government and was the spokesperson for Metrorail. � Mmanaledi Mataboge
