I have a Bachelor’s in Commerce (Accounting major) 1994 from the University of Swaziland and completed my Master of Business Administration (MBA) in Enterprise Development in 2010 from the Maastricht School of Management, Netherlands. I am also a certified Accountant from the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA).

I have been working with the Swaziland Public Procurement Regulatory Agency (SPPRA), Mbabane, Swaziland from November 2013 till date as the Chief Executive Officer. Prior to this, I have worked with the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA in Swaziland from July 2012 November 2013 as an Operations Manager.

I have also worked with the Southern African Customs Union (SACU), Namibia, from 2006-11 apart from AMICALL, Unitrans, Swaziland Business Growth Trust, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and BP Africa in various senior positions.

I also have a CIPS Level 2 Certification in Public Procurement from the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS) in Nairobi, Kenya apart from the CPPP training.

My motivation to complete CPPP comes from the fact that our organization, the Swaziland Public Procurement Regulatory Agency (SPPRA) is a statutory regulatory body, which is mandated to, among other things, professionalize public procurement. The Agency itself needs to develop its own capacity and The World Bank has been providing us ad hoc technical support. While developing our internal training plan and a public procurement capacity building strategy for the country, we have committed to doing CPPP as a start, mainly because CPPP has been endorsed by The World Bank.

I am very committed towards professionalizing public procurement. Not only because the organization I run is tasked with this deliverable, but also because I believe professionalized public procurement has the potential to immensely contribute to Governance and social accountability; Service delivery; Private sector development and trade; and Public sector capacity development.

Professionalization of public procurement may well be the key to unlocking Africa’s potential, largely because of the resultant increased transparency, better value for money, and continuous improvements in systems meant to close the gaps that provide opportunities for corruption, waste, and general malpractices in procurement.

I also believe that professionalized public procurement contributes to improved planning, execution, monitoring, and evaluation of national strategies and budgets.
