Ncube ‘worked hard for his good name’

2013-10-03 00:00

SIBUSISO Ncube, the fiancé of KwaZulu-Natal MEC for Co-operative Governance Nomusa Dube, has worked hard for his good name in the business world.

Ncube’s spokesperson, Thami Ngidi, asked yesterday if it was fair for certain politicians, in search of their own glory, to choose to do so at the cost of their reputations or that of their partners.

Ngidi was responding to allegations made by the IFP in a press briefing on Tuesday that Ncube’s security company Enforce had received preferential contracts because of his links to the MEC.

Ngidi said Ncube was a seasoned entrepreneur and a registered co-owner in several companies, all of which were engaged in professional business in the private and public sectors.

“Mr Ncube is a director of several companies and serves as executive chairman of Enforce Security Services, where he is a major shareholder. He is also a non-executive chairperson of Afriscan Construction and a shareholder in Brand Partners and Sinosa, among others,” said Ngidi.

He added that with more than 20 years of dedicated involvement in business, Ncube was a businessman with impeccable credentials.

“He currently serves as chairman of the Security Industry Alliance and recently served as president of the South Africa Security Association. He was the first black person to hold these positions.

“That he has been given these responsibilities indicates the esteem with which he is held by the multi-billion-rand security industry,” Ngidi said.

The spokesperson confirmed that Ncube’s involvement in Enforce Security Services dates back to long before Dube became the Co-operative Governance MEC.

According to Ngidi, today Enforce does business with some of the most sought-after clients in South Africa. These include financial institutions, exclusive residential complexes, major shopping malls, as well as government.
