Work Experience

Appointed Executive Director of Fort Hare Solutions, at the University of Fort Hare 

I oversee the institutional administration of Fort Hare Solutions, supervise research and the various  training programmes, as well as facilitate certain training programmes. 

When I joined Fort Hare Solutions the auditors had qualified its financial statements and its relationship with its key stakeholders such as the Eastern Cape Provincial Government was at an all time low. Our financial statements are now unqualified and, on the 23-24 March 2017,  we successfully held a conference whose theme was ‘Effective Partnerships in the implementation of the National Development Plan’, and it was sponsored by the Eastern Cape Provincial Government, the National Planning Commission, the Industrial Development Corporation and the Buffalo City Metro Municipality. We currently deliver training programmes to all municipalities in the Eastern Cape, we have been awarded a contract by the National School of Government to deliver management development programmes to public servants in the Eastern Cape, Free State and KwaZulu-Natal . We also conduct research for the Land Claims Commission focusing on three projects in Limpopo and two in Kwazulu-Natal. 

1 April 2005-to 31 June 2015 

CHIEF OPERATIONS OFFICER- DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE AND CONSTITUTIONAL DEVELOPMENT 

I was the first Chief Operations Officer for the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development. I established the Office of the COO. I created a new Security and Risk Management Chief Directorate. It provided security to more than 700 courts throughout South Africa, it conducted integrity audits to approximately 22000 public servants in the department, and it also developed the risk management plans of the Department. 

I also created a new Strategic Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation Chief Directorate of the Department. We found the Department having its financial statements qualified by the auditors and its performance management information also qualified. When I left in 2015 the financial statements of the Department, except for the Third Party Fund, was unqualified and the performance information was also unqualified. 

I created a new Post-Truth and Reconciliation Commission Chief Directorate whose mandate was to trace the victims of apartheid declared by the TRC Commission, as well as create relevant  regulations to support these victims. When I left in 2015, the majority of victims were found and paid their compensation, and regulations on basic and higher education as well as health were developed to look after the education and health needs of victims. I had also identified and consulted with 18 communities throughout the country with the purpose of implementing the community rehabilitation recommendations.  

I also created a Programme Support and Administration Chief Directorate whose focus was to develop the service delivery improvement programme, coordinate donor funding and facilitate the resolution of audit findings raised by internal and external auditors. The service delivery improvement programme unit has achieved the development of service delivery models, the mapping of processes, the development of standard operating procedures, the development and approval of Service charter and approval of the service delivery improvement plan. The department was amongst the top five national departments which achieved between 90-100 % in dealing with presidential hotline complaints. A donor coordination policy was developed and approved. Three donor conferences were held. Donor funding was solicited from USAID,European Union ,the Swiss amongst others. The audit facilitation unit contributed in the achievement of no audit qualification for period of three/ four years.
