Boyce Mkhize

Chief executive, Health Professions Council of South Africa

In the last few months the health profession has had to deal with some controversy: Schabir Shaik being released from prison on the grounds of ill health and the doctor's strike to name but a few, but Advocate Boyce Mkhize sees his job as keeping his organisation on track as a credible regulator. Mkhize started his career at the Community Law Centre in Durban as a human rights lawyer and was later appointed by the Constitutional assembly to manage the drafting of the constitution for KwaZulu-Natal. He joined the Health Professions Council of South Africa as chief executive and registrar in 2000. He is also the author of two books � and the Two Shall become One: 10 Marriage Commandments and Life Principles and South African Constitutional Values. � Eamon Allan
