Bio

Nobel Peace Prize winner (with International Atomic Energy Agency in 2005), committed to assisting developing countries gain from the globalisation and customers to get the best. I'm committed to private sector development and that's why I moved to Cape Town to set up my own company, a caffe, that serves one of the best coffees and best cheesecake. The best way to know is to experience it yourself.
