“I’ve made my passion for people my purpose!”


Lwandile Ngubentombi knows first hand the transformative power of entrepreneurialism. His late parents, Professor SVS Ngubentombi and Claudia Lima Ngubentombi, were dynamic entrepreneurs who used their passion for development to rise above their humble rural village beginnings to a relatively fortunate position in what were difficult times for black South Africans.


After graduating from university, Lwandile joined the working force and was employed at Nedbank Corporate Property Finance in Durban on a two-year graduate program. By virtue of his work ethic, he was employed full time as a Junior Relationship Manager 15 months into the program and into a fully-fledged Relationship Manager 3 years later. It was during this time that Lwandile amassed his knowledge in the property development and investment sector, whilst nurturing his business acumen at the same time through various business ventures.


Following the passing of his father in December 2012, Lwandile opted to bid farewell to the corporate environment and enthusiastically embrace his family’s legacy of entrepreneurialism. He would assume the role of Managing Director of the family owned Sinda and Lima Properties (Pty) Ltd, whose portfolio is largely based in Mthatha. It was whilst managing this portfolio that he was able to father Claudia Lima Group Investments by investing in sound small businesses and business ideas. He could call on his network, experience at the bank and the lessons learned in past business ventures to assist the new business owner in side stepping the “many landmines of the Start-up.”




Claudia Lima Group’s vision is to be a world-class property investment and development company while simultaneously contributing positively to entrepreneurialism and the advancement of Small, Medium and Micro-sized Enterprises (SMMEs) as the catalyst to achieving Transformation, economic growth and development in South Africa.
