Our Training Director, Walter Gwala has many years of poultry experience and is deeply committed to growing people and poultry production in Africa. He guides our training programmes and loves interacting with our delegates in the classroom and on the training farm.
Janet Lee as Managing Director oversees all aspects of the institute’s activities and assists with facilitation. She has been involved with the poultry sector in South Africa for many years and loves seeing the growth in trainee’s confidence and knowledge during their studies at the KZNPI.
The training farm is managed by Lindelihle Nxumalo who has developed his poultry skills and experience during his 6 years at the KZNPI. He also assists with practical training on the farm.
Lindelihle is currently on a year’s poultry internship in the U.S.A. through the World Poultry and Future Farmers Foundations. Michael Makolometse is our Broiler and Layer Farmer and oversees these units on the training farm. He is also very hands-on with our small hatchery.
Siyabonga Dlamini looks after the broiler breeder and pullet rearing units in the training farm. Although he is quite new to poultry farming he is learning rapidly!
Administration is the domain of Mary-Ann Bruton. She takes multi-tasking to a whole new level and juggles phone enquiries, bookkeeping, training admin and all the myriad office tasks with cheerful efficiency.
