Sihle was born and bred in the heart of Soweto. After graduating from Law Studies at Wits University, he went on to study Theology at George Whitefield College in Cape Town and later at Cornhill in London. He then lectured for 4 years at Johannesburg Bible College, pioneering the Soweto Campus and sat on the Board of the College.

Sihle is passionate about mentoring and developing young leaders from marginalized communities and has led 3 church plants in three different major cities in South Africa. It was during the years of leading a church in Soweto that he got involved with orphans and vulnerable children in the community. He has lectured and facilitated workshops nationally on topics like Race and Understanding Townships, and views himself as a bridge between communities; the privileged and the poor, townships and suburbs.
