Johannesburg - The Gauteng MEC for Infrastructure Development and Property Management Tasneem Motara has expressed shock and sadness at the news that Motheo Construction founder and CEO Dr Thandi Ndlovu has passed away.
Motara said Dr Ndlovu was one of the female pioneers in the construction industry.
“Dr Ndlovu entered the construction sector when it was not fashionable to do so and had to work against odds to succeed and sustain her business in the sector. It goes to show the kind of strong woman that she was,” Motara said.
The MEC added that Dr Ndlovu’s company, Motheo Construction, had successfully completed many projects not only in Gauteng but around the country as well. This is testimony to the person of Dr Ndlovu who was all about quality and indeed a true professional as well as a comrade dedicated to a progressive South Africa.
“We will miss her dearly. Dr Ndlovu recently came to my office as part of a stakeholder engagement I have been organizing. I was truly impressed with her as a person. I am saddened and very shocked. I join the country in conveying my condolences to the family, colleagues, friends and associates in this difficult time. It is truly a loss to the country and the people of Gauteng who have benefited immensely from the work she has done,” Motara said.
