Our cover story this month is an in-depth, exclusive interview with Head of Procurement at Uganda Breweries, Joshua Muwema, who discusses how the company’s localised sourcing strategy is helping to give back to communities in the country.

A global company with a local focus is Accenture. Nishal Nair, MD of Accenture Africa, discusses the ways in which the business is applying advanced technology to ensure that mining remains a profitable industry for the continent.
