Ntiyiso Consulting founder and group chief executive officer Alex Mabunda believes more still needs to be done to sustain the business despite it seeing great success in a highly competitive space. 

Mabunda started the business in 2005 and has over 21 years of industrial and management consulting experience.

The organisation has five subsidiaries – Ntiyiso Revenue Consulting, Ntiyiso Business Consulting, Ntiyiso Industrialisation Consulting, Ntiyiso Digital Services and Ntiyiso Aviation Services.

Speaking on POWER Business, Mabunda says: “It has not been an easy 16 years. We only managed to start turning the business around in the past six, seven years where we have seen phenomenal growth.”

He adds: “It is still a highly contested market and there is still a lot that needs to be done to sustain the business.”

Mabunda says that they are proud of the work they have done since their establishment.

“We are looking forward to the next 15 years – knowing that it takes 30 years to build anything that will outlast the generation and that’s what we are aiming to do.”

Mubunda has described the first 10 years of his business as a “roller-coaster” journey. 

“The most important thing which has happened, certainly in this period of growth, is obviously us transcending from just being a business where you get the next contract, send the bill, get the money in, pay people and be happy, to a purpose-driven business.”

He admits that business has not been great in the country in both the public and private sector, however, their aim during these conditions is to make a contribution through bringing efficiency in the spaces they work, especially in government. 

“It pains me sometimes when I’m listening to POWER 98.7 and we talking about UIF that is paying dead people.

“You talk about the traffic management system where people for months are not getting service for simple things. In our world, these are obvious things.”
