David King - Director

Grew up in the rural area of Lusikisiki having done his primary level of schooling at Hillbrow J.S. School.I was then taken to Nqabeni Primary school by my parents who felt that I would get better education in KwaZulu-Natal. Having passed my primary level in Nqabeni, I was then moved to Harding senior secondary school. Due to my involvement in strikes that took place in the early 90’s at the dawn of democracy I was told not to come back at the end of my standard eight.In 2013 David registered with Ndzululwazi Academy to do matric and in 2014 passed with exemption. In 2015, he registered with Unisa for a three-year degree in Public Administration until to date.In 1993, I was employed as a security at the Munster Town Board. I then left the town board for a better paying job in Lusikisiki.In 1993, I was employed at a wholesaler known as Lusikisiki Cas and Carry as a price marker. In 1995, I was promoted as a stock controller. In 1998, I then moved to greener pastures to Browns Cash and Carry sales. That was where I did a few courses on management.In 2006 our term as councilors came to an end. I then started doing a transportation business which had its challenges, but I survived. In October 2007, an opportunity arose for me to be employed in the public sector, Department of Health. Upon my employment, it’s where I met the Union of choice, the PSA. It was just a few months in the Department of Health and I was elected as a shop steward. In 2008, I began my involvement in PHSDSBC structure as just a member of the structure. In 2011, I was elected to be the vice-chairperson of the Sectoral Branch PHSDSBC Eastern Cape. In 2012, I was elected as the Chairperson of the Sectoral Branch PHSDSBC until to date. In 2012, I also began my involvement in the Eastern Cape chamber as part of the members representing the PSA. In 2013, I was elected as vice-chairperson of the chamber to 2016.

As Chairperson of the Structure I was persistent that the structure should at least reflect some of the professions in the Department of Health and Social Development for example paramedics, nurses, social workers etc. By virtue of being vice-chairperson of the Chamber I then become Chairperson of the Labour Caucus. Election of the chamber management is done on annual basis. I have been re-elected as vice-chairperson of the Chamber since 2013 to date. Upon my re-election unions made it clear that the reason for my re-election was the unity I managed to bring among them as unions. Prior to my positions in the chamber, attendance to chamber by unions was very poor. Under my leadership it has since picked up and all unions are represented in all meetings of chamber.Elected as Director of the Board on 23 October 2017.
