Pule Mabe Biography
Pule Mabe is a South African politician and businessman known as the inventor of the now-patented Enviro Motorbikes, which can remove wastes from areas inaccessible to large waste trucks.
Born in Limpopo, Pule Mabe’s interest in politics dates back to when he was much younger. He joined the ruling African National Congress (ANC) and quickly rose through the ranks, becoming the party’s national spokesperson in 2018 after the exit of Zizi Kodwa.
His tenure in that seat was riddled with controversy. In 2018, his former personal assistant accused him of sexual harassment, but he denied the claims. According to the then 26-year-old, she rejected his advances and was victimised as a result.
The case has since died down, and Pule Mabe has continued with his political life.
Several aspects of Pule Mabe’s life might not be public knowledge, but his age is certainly not one of them. He was born in 1980, which means he was 42 at the time of writing. Unlike most, his birthdays are rarely occasions for wild parties.
By South African standards, Pule Mabe is doing pretty well. You cannot catch the man dead speaking about how much he’s worth. However, he’s said to be among the richest South Africans in politics.
His exact net worth is unknown. However, conservative figures from multiple sources put his net worth at around $ 7 million to $10 million.
The ANC chieftain has his hands on several piles, from media to environmental waste management. In the media world, he’s known to own KG Media, a publishing outfit. He’s also justly recognised in South Africa as the man behind the Enviro Mobi Company.
The company has a patented motorbike that can remove wastes from areas that are not accessible to large waste disposal trucks.
Pule Mabe is a lover of education. So it wasn’t surprising that he should obtain a national diploma in journalism from the Tshwane University of Technology and a Master of Business Leadership (MBL) from the University of South Africa’s Graduate School of Business Leadership.
To many people, the car is the man – as in, the car gives a clue about the man standing. Still, it appears Pule Mabe is one of those public officials who would not want any publicity about their vehicles. It’s unclear what brands of cars he owns and their models.
However, a year ago, he was under investigation by the Special Investigation Unit over the payment of R16.5m for waste collection with his patent motorbikes.
It has been said that where a person lives might give a clue to his net worth. That might be true in some cases. Interestingly, it’s unclear where Pule Mabe lives at the time of writing. The common narrative out there, though, is that he lives in one of the choice parts of town with his family.
Given his position in the South African government, that shouldn’t be surprising, perhaps.
At some point in his life, with the spectre of a health challenge looming, Pule Mabe made a decision for his life and health. He promised himself that he would be in shape and healthy by the time he was 40 years old.
And he did keep the promise to himself. He stopped smoking and stopped eating junk food. Now he plays golf, takes long walks and engages in other exercises to keep his weight in check and stay healthy. He’s also eating healthy now, encouraged by his wife, Hleki.
