Identifying a need in the market for a quality-oriented security company, Divine founded SECURICO Security Services in Zimbabwe in 1998, marking her as one of Africa’s most tenacious and inspiring women entrepreneurs, according to the ‘Companies to Inspire Africa’ report.

In her interview with Lioness of Africa, she revealed that her motivation stems from a desire to empower previously disadvantaged women in Zimbabwe who were not able to access opportunities for formal employment, recognizing that the security sector had the potential to be a large-scale employer.

Founder and Managing Director Ndhlukulu runs a fast-growing business in Zimbabwe and is currently the largest private company employer of women in the country with 900 women employees on her payroll.

The company rose to be the second largest in Zimbabwe in the provision of electronic security systems like CCTV, access control systems, alarms, remote site monitoring and response services, electric fences, among others. 

The company also specializes in undertaking private investigations, employment vetting, risk assessments, security policy formulation, setting up security systems and establishing security profiles of employees, Lioness of Africa reports. In 2005, her company formed a subsidiary company known as, Canine Dog Services, specializing in the breeding, training and leasing of guard dogs.
