Bibusa Ngalande Wißemann
Business development and Investment Advisor
I am a Kaonde whose nick name is Bibi, the first born of 9 siblings, a mother of two, a proud Tonga/Kaonde, who tries to keep up with speaking both languages fluently. Attending several schools in Zambia led me to speak five Zambian Languages and three international ones.
Attending schools such as Kikombe basic in Solwezi, Rhodes Park, Lusaka girls, has helped me to understand and learn to thrive in different environments. At some point in my life, i switched from Rhodes Park to Lusaka Girls because my Grades had become poor and my parents thought this to be a good „Punishment“ to help me improve my grades.
This change motivated me to improve my grades and move back to Rhoespark after only one term at Lusaka girls. This was one of the hardest punishments I ever received from my Parents that I will never forget. After attending Rhodes park I moved to Kikombe as my mother who was then Senior officer of Solwezi general Hospital and Principal of the Nursing School.
I attended grades 8 – 11 at Mukinge girls, and finished my 12th grade in the first girls intake at Solwezi Technical boys High School. where I was the Vice-Head Girl
Failure is just a Process to Sucess
My mother taught me how to bake and that’s how I started ‚Bi,s Scones. She would help me by selling my scones at the Hospital. Since the loss of both my parents, I have taken the responsibility of rising my siblings with the strong foundation of putting God first instilled in me by my parents.
I am also the Chief Executive Officer and founder for SensXAfrica Limited. I’m a communication, business development and investment advisory expert who boasts more than 15 years of experience.

The success enjoyed over the years can been attributed to UNIDO. The UNIDO-IDEA project for Southern and Eastern Africa is one of the projects I intend to further pursue.
