Tshepa Basadi, which means “Trust Women” in Setswana, was established in 2017 in the Kalahari (Hotazel) region by Mbali Milanzi and Thabile Nkomo. We are a 100% black female owned and 49% youth-owned operated organisation. Our vision is to challenge the status quo by becoming a female-led niche mining project management and technical services consulting company. We endeavour to provide our clients with exceptional professional services that enable them to meet the demands of their portfolios. We have achieved this mission by ensuring the following:
- Create value for our clients and help them realize full value from their projects and portfolios.
- Continuously build driven teams, the members of which are nationally and internationally accredited with the relevant project management and professional engineering bodies.
- We are accountable to our clients for disciplined delivery.
- And we ensure a sustainable and profitable organisation. Our journey has provided us with technical expertise in open-cast, underground, and deep level conventional mining activities.
This year, we will surpass the R22.5 billion milestone in projects value delivered, in the past 5 years, adding to our teams’ credibility. We have demonstrated value-add in a variety of mining organisations, and we believe our skill set would be invaluable to any mining organisation.
We have a team of more than sixty (60) professionals with extensive experience in front-end loading and project execution in a variety of industries. We have extensive knowledge of the mining and energy business value chain and we have been involved in project prioritization and one- to five-year capital strategy planning in this environment. These initiatives ranged in size from small to big capital investments with varying risk profiles. Our core expertise is in mining, minerals, energy, and our partner portfolio has steadily grown over the last five years (2017-current). Furthermore, we have steadily expanded our service options in the project services and engineering sectors. We have expertise with brownfields, greenfields, and redfields projects. Our teams have completed projects involving production improvement, expense improvement/ maintenance, risk reduction, and legal compliance, all while adhering to project management governance. In some instances, we have developed project management frameworks and project organisational process assets. Some of our projects required close collaboration among the client, contractors, project management offices (PMOs), labour unions, and, in some cases, government entities such as the Department of Mineral Resources (DMR), the Department of Roads and Public Works, municipalities, and state-owned enterprises such as Eskom and Transnet Freight Rail. We have also created and managed a variety of engineering, procurement, construction, and management (EPCM) contracts, with a consistent track record of project safety and success.
