‘I pursued this qualification due to my desire to develop my investigative skills as I have been in this field for the past 15 plus years, 13 of which were within the Intelligence Unit of the South African Police Service before joining UKZN in 2017.’
So said Mr Thula Clement Sibisi who graduated with a Postgraduate Diploma in Forensic Investigation and Criminal Justice.
Sibisi added that he hopes to contribute to ensuring that South African law is amongst the best in the world.
‘Whilst studying for this qualification I gained more knowledge and understanding of different techniques to gather, evaluate and present court evidence as well as those for the admissibility of evidence in a court case,’ he said.
A father of two, Sibisi enjoys playing soccer and organising soccer events at Adams Mission where he stays.
He said that he is grateful to his family for their constant support throughout the course of his career.
He is currently the Investigations Officer for Risk Management Services on the Howard College campus.
