The new company has the distinct advantage of having access to OF&A's personnel and technological resources which comprise qualified specialists within various fields including law, pharmaceuticals, criminal investigations and polygraphy.

"This means we start out with a proven track record of having a 98,3% success rate," says Tshikalange, CE of Securicheck. "We aim to bring support to southern Africa's partially collapsed law enforcement and judicial system by working hand-in-hand with the South African Police Services, SA Revenue Services' Customs and Excise unit and other law enforcement

"Our potential client base will include companies and individuals in the industrial, corporate, commercial and government sectors."

Tshikalange leads the company with qualifications in BProc and diploma in community and leadership skills. Coming from the Royal Venda family, he started work with the community and youth development from an early age. Whilst studying law he continued work at the economic desk of the Youth League and later attended a course in community development and leadership skills in Israel. He simultaneously attended courses on economic empowerment and development.

William Baloyi joins Securicheck bringing with him an extensive and intimate knowledge of counter intelligence and understanding of socio, political and economic order. He has an advanced diploma in management, marketing and accounting.

The other shareholders of the Securicheck are Ockie Fourie and Prue Fourie, the pioneers of forensic investigations and directors of OF&A.

Ockie Fourie spent 13 years in the Criminal Investigations Department of the South African Police. During this time he obtained a Bachelor of Arts Degree in law majoring in Police Science and Criminology. Before founding OF&A he worked at a management level for a leading commercial bank. He started OF&A in 1982 and has since built the company into one of the country's most successful forensic investigations agencies, dealing mainly in white-collar crime.

Prue Fourie joined OF&A in 1988, responsible for the administration and marketing of the company. Prue has a proven track record of excellent business and financial acumen and has gained extensive experience in the security field and the marketing of such services.
