Makhosi Khoza

MP, African National Congress.

Dr. Makhosi Busisiwe Khoza is a Member of Parliament serving on the Standing Committee on Finance. She is also a former chairperson of the Standing Committee on Public Accounts and Finance (SCOPA) in KwaZulu-Natal and has over 20 years of collective experience at both public and private sector institutions.

Khoza’s previous employers include Msinsi Holdings, Akani Retirement Fund Administrators and the South African Local Government Association (SALGA) where she was at the helm, as well as Universities of the Witwatersrand Business School and Natal. She holds a PHD in Administration, a master’s degree in Social Science (Policy and Development studies) and is a fellow at the Aspen Global Leadership Institute. Khoza is currently studying towards a master’s degree in Finance at the University of London.

Her recent achievements include ground-breaking research culminating in a textbook that unpacks the logic and sophistication of indigenous languages. Using South Africa’s lingua franca Zulu as an example, Khoza has proven the consistency of Zulu with mathematical formulas and science principles. She has since created a language order called UZALO (Ubuntu Zulu Alphabetical Logic Order) comprising of a 12 noun cluster system which drives the construction of meaningful sentences.
