The B-BBEE Commission has learnt with sadness of the passing of Mr Lutendo Sigogo, the Chairperson of the B-BBEE Commission Enforcement Committee, which is a great loss for broad-based black economic empowerment in South Africa. Mr Lutendo Sigogo was appointed as Chairperson of the B-BBEE Commission Enforcement Committee in 2016 to guide and advise on the enforcement work of the B-BBEE Commission at its inception.
Mr Lutendo Sigogo led the Enforcement Committee selflessly and contributed immensely in shaping the establishment of the B-BBEE Commission to regulate B-BBEE in South Africa. His guidance and counsel sharpened our enforcement processes while his passion and commitment to real economic transformation was a refreshing inspiration to the team. He was also concerned about the lack of transformation in the legal profession and very eager to see the finalisation of a sector code to change the landscape.
His passing is a great loss for advancement of economic transformation of black South Africans and the many structures he served in, including the Legal Practice Council and Black Lawyers Association. The B-BBEE Commission extends its deepest condolences to the family of Mr Lutendo Sigogo and may they be comforted in this difficult time.
