Empowerment

Thebe Investment Corporation is a Level 1 B-BBEE contributor which is a majority of black women-owned. South Africa's turbulent past is expected to contribute to Africa’s growth. The Rainbow Nation is expected to remain the main engine of African growth and is exceptionally blessed with excellent infrastructure, systems and democratic institutions which help to ensure a smoothly running state. However, South Africa suffers from historical social problems, being a legacy of Apartheid, and although much progress has been made, many of her people are yet to be properly catered for. The Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (“B-BBEE”) policies of government remain the best means of a transformation to redress the historical economic imbalances in South African society.
