About me:

Justice is a lobbyist who works with businesses to overcome government regulatory challenges through in-depth economic impact assessments and engagement with policy makers.
Justice firmly believes that for Africa to truly realize its potential, it needs an African business framework that prioritizes greater integration of African business markets, embraces The Fourth Industrial Revolution and is underpinned by a core focus on youth skills and entrepreneurship.

Justice works as a Manager for Policy and Advocacy at the Durban Chamber of Commerce and Industry (largest and oldest Chamber of Commerce in South Africa) overseeing 16 industry sector forums. Through his work at the Durban Chamber he has contributed to the introduction and amendments of more than 100 Acts, Bills, Policies and Municipal By-Laws. This has earned him a seat on the South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s National Policy Committee. He has also consulted for the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research in creating Intellectual Property Business Valuation Models where he championed the commercialization of numerous technologies into the African Market.

Justice has received awards on his published journal articles focusing on the South African Financial Markets. He has also completed Leader Academy®, a programme offered to World Economic Forum Global Shapers where he is a member.
