Industry bids JSE head farewell

Published: 08/12/2021

Dr Raphael Karuaihe, head of commodities at the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) and a well-known figure in the agricultural sector, will be leaving the company at the end of 2021. This follows a career at the JSE that spanned almost ten years. Dr Karuaihe has been appointed as the chief executive officer (CEO) of the Agricultural Bank of Namibia.
During an interview with RSG Landbou, he said that he is looking forward to his new position and new challenges that await at the Agricultural Bank of Namibia. This institution is a stateowned enterprise equivalent to the Land Bank in South Africa. He will, however, not disappear from the South African scene – in his new position he will be exploring joint programmes to accomplish expansion in African trade. He believes that Agbiz Grain members can play an important part on the other side of South Africa’s borders. – Ursula Human, Agbiz Grain Quarterly
