Testimonials

Brian Sehume

" I am writing in enthusiastic support of Dr Ntuli work that he included in his LinkedIn profile . It has been 5-6 years since I have known Dr Tobias M. Ntuli as both, a close friend and colleague. I was first introduced to Dr T when I joined Medical Research Council in 2008, where he was working as a Senior scientist at MRC.
Dr Ntuli is one of the most disciplined and punctual person I've ever known. His ability to work efficiently under stressful conditions and nerve-wracking deadlines speaks volumes about his hard work, determination, and composed demeanor. I would also like to add that, Dr Ntuli is a compassionate human being with praiseworthy perseverance and ambition.
