"Capitalised with a R100,000 grant, Thebe formally opened for business in July 1992. Thebe’s sole shareholder at the time was the Batho Batho Trust. The original Board of Trustees included Nelson Mandela (Chairman), Walter Sisulu, Rev Beyers Naudé and Siddik Ahmed.

"Enos Mabuza was appointed Non-Executive Chairman of Thebe in 1992. Having left the employ of the African National Congress in June 1992, Vusi Khanyile became the founding CEO. Supported by a team that shared the vision of making economic self-sufficiency a reality for the majority of South Africans, Vusi Khanyile was integral to the efforts that led to the establishment of Thebe. The support of Thomas Nkobi and Walter Sisulu proved invaluable at that time." [1]
