A qualified mechanical engineer with an MBA, Zungu is the founder of Zungu Investments Company (Zico), an investment company with diversified interests in manufacturing and services. He is currently chairman of EOH Holdings, non-executive director of Grindrod Limited and Novus Holdings, all listed on the JSE Securities Exchange. He is a member of the BRICS Business Council, former Vice President of the Black Business Council and serves on the Presidential BEE Advisory Council.

Bheka Luthuli is a diversified entrepreneur and a gunshot survivor. He was shot in the head in an apparent attempted hit in Durban’s upmarket suburb of Morningside recently. He was not expected to survive after being gravely wounded in the shooting. Luthuli was in a deep coma for four weeks and in the hospital intensive care unit for three months. Doctors said he would be lucky if survived and gave him a 0% to 1% chance of recovering. Amazingly he survived and has been released from the hospital. The Umlazi-born multimillionaire businessman is grateful to be alive to tell the tale.
The seminar’s cost is R1,000 per person and R1,500 per couple and includes dinner and a cocktail networking session. Afro-pop band Mafikizolo will be the musical guests. The Secrets of Success Seminar is sponsored by Diageo, Gabhisa TV and PD Productions.
