Mzukisi Lembeni is a hard man to pin down; he can be an advocate for responsible tourism, a magician and deep hearted community builder in one go.

One minute he is here, the next he is over there, on a seemingly never-ending mission to “please, educate and empower”.

This he tells this humble Mkonto scribe when we finally get to sit down for a quick nibble at Ntsiki Ndzishe Restuarant based in the Lookout Hill.

With a mouthful, the excitable Lembeni explains his vision for his tourism company, Imzu Tours.

“I started this based on a passion, but now I am an entrepreneur who has evolved into a jobs creater for the locals,” he says.

Lembeni also helps people with projects around the communities and motivate the youth for better future.

he seems a passionate social entrepreneur with a warm hearted personality.

His enthusiasm and ambitions for both the community and its people is far beyond feasible.

“Mzu” as he is affectionately known to peers, colleagues and the general public, is more than a qualified tour guide, does a lot of studying and continues with being self-taught in order to develop his career and as a social commentator.

He now wants to share his secrets with learners at various schools.

“My mission is to provide an environment that enables all students to grow academically. Provide an environment that will direct learners to positive attitudes and better life,” he says.

“Success comes from being loyal and true to yourself. Learners must work hard and do the best in their studies in order to succeed in this ever-changing world,” he avers.

He instils hope, work ethic and a culture of education to our future leaders through various platforms such as motivational talks, workshops and informative tours.

He has earned a number of accolades and has built relationships with established brands and co-operations within and beyond the township over the years. Add to that an enterprising spirit, which is demonstrated during visits to the local shebeen, primary schools, sports institutions, the craft marketing, community centres and local vendors.

The tour gives a glimpse into the township of Khayelitsha and the turbulent past of the area and an insight into the influential and the ordinary residence within the dusty streets of the developing municipality.

The township tour does not only offer a travel around Khayelitsha but also includes a voyage to the V&A Waterfront’s Two Oceans Aquarium in one package.

Imzu Tours also provide unique academic tours (mostly for schools) based on the specialised curriculum options such as history tours, art work, cultural, community services, social responsibility, economic, marine biologist, business entrepreneurial skills and many more.

“Our tours will introduce learners to places of historical significance, other languages and cultures,” he concludes.
