THOBILE MGENGWANA

DIRECTOR

Thobile Julian Mgengwana was admitted as an attorney of the High Court of South Africa in August 2001 after completing his BA and LLB at the University of Cape Town, attending the School of Legal Practice and Articles of Clerkship at MacKay-Davidson under the tutelage of Shelley MacKay-Davidson and Gavin Tinkler.

After spending a year at MacKay-Davidson as a head of its Collections Department, Thobile moved to the Road Accident Fund’s Mediation, Arbitration and Litigation Department in 2002 where he spent approximately five years. At the Road Accident Fund Thobile was instrumental in ensuring that contentious matters are settled quickly and cost effectively directly with Plaintiffs’ attorneys. He was also a link between the Road Accident Fund’s panel of attorneys and Plaintiff’s attorneys and was on many occasions personally involved in negotiating settlement of matters and thereby ensured that matters did not go to trial unnecessarily, this saved the Road Accident Fund huge amounts of money as we all know the astronomical costs of High Court litigation. In recognition of his enormous capabilities, Thobile was seconded to the Road Accident Fund’s High Value Department which was based at the Headquarters of the Road Accident Fund in Pretoria as a part of a team that was tasked with settling matters estimated at a R1 000 000.00 or more per matter.

Shortly afterwards, Thobile was recruited by Nongogo, Nuku Inc. which was a successful firm of attorneys which had among its clients the Road Accident Fund in recognition of his outstanding capabilities in dealing with the assessment of merits and quantum of high risk High Court litigated matters. Since Thobile moved to Nongogo, Nuku Inc., he has crisscrossed the country litigating in the High Courts of Kimberley, Pretoria and Johannesburg. Besides the Road Accident Fund, Thobile has been instructed by Transnet, the South African Board for Sheriffs, the City of Cape Town, Trade Unions and high profile individuals to institute or defend High Court proceedings on their behalf.

Thobile’s talents have also been recognised by the Metro Rail which invited him to chair disciplinary proceedings involving individuals in senior positions.

He has also often been requested by the South African Board for Sheriffs to prosecute delinquent Magistrates Court and High Court Sheriffs in the Eastern and Northern Cape and has been instrumental in ensuring that rogue Sheriffs are found guilty and removed from the Sheriffs roll.
