Mr Rwambiwa is a senior sales representative who believes his biggest weakness is that he is a perfectionist. He also believes he deserves investment from Lord Sugar because his business idea will improve the quality of people’s lives.

Ahead of the series, Mr Rwambiwa said: “My unique selling point (USP) is myself. If people can’t buy into you, they’ll never buy anything from you. My biggest weakness is that I’m a perfectionist, I always want to get things right.

“I deserve Lord Sugar’s business investment because I have a business that not only guarantees profit, but also guarantees to improve the quality of peoples’ lives.”
