"I'm not a complicated person; I live my life by simple truths," says Aligasen Naidu, President SAICE for 2010. Honesty, integrity and ethical behaviour are for Ali 'simple truths' in an era where such character traits often are sacrificed on the road to power and profit. "I detest dishonesty in people... it's almost as if you've erected a stone wall in front of me when I realise that you have not been candid with me," he says with earnest conviction. Although reserved by nature Ali expresses himself without hesitation when it comes to matters of principle and other issues close to his heart. This was clear when he spoke to Lorraine Fourie about the highlights marking his professional and personal life.
