About Hlumelo Biko

The son of Black Consciousness founder Steve Biko and Dr World Bank director Mamphele Ramphele has got big shoes to fill. He may just do that with a shrewd move into the African cannabis space by launching his own investment fund, the AfriCan Growth Fund. But the venture capitalist has something of a checkered reputation – he’s got bad press in the past two years with creditors accusing him of acting in bad faith and a domestic violence charge laid against him. Best he clean up his act if he’s going to make a fresh go of it.
