To ensure that Maru-A-Pula-Investments (Pty) Ltd continues to grow community-based projects, and implements cost-effective AMD effluent and other water treatment solutions throughout South Africa.

To continue to provide a patented solution, by utilising products containing Marine 3 – Marine 3 is the worldwide patented, environmentally-friendly surfactant of Maru-A-Pula’s technological partner, Mosmart Investments (Pty) Ltd.

To nurture Maru-A-Pula’s partnership with Mosmart Investments, to guarantee that the products used in AMD effluent and other water treatment solutions remain environmentally friendly, and exclusively supplied to Maru-A-Pula.

To continue to uplift communities through skills transfer and job creation.


To be the choice service provider of AMD effluent and other water treatment solutions which transform not only the quality of water, but also quality of life for communities across South Africa.


Maru-A-Pula is a black-owned company which offers all-in-one AMD effluent and other water treatment solutions.

Maru-A-Pula was founded by its current directors – Moya Nape, Thandeka Mandindi and Gregory de Villiers – in response to the lack of a superior, economical, and time-efficient solution to treat and purify water.

In order to provide cost-effective AMD effluent and other water treatment solutions, Maru-A-Pula joined forces with Mosmart Investments (Pty) Ltd, its technological partner. Mosmart Investments holds a worldwide patent in respect of Marine 3, an environmentally-friendly surfactant used in the manufacture of its tailor-made products. Site-specific combinations of products are used in treating, purifying and transforming water.

By filling this gap in the market, Maru-A-Pula has opened up the possibility for all communities to reap the benefits of implementation of the AMD effluent and other water treatment solutions.

These advantages include eradication of waterborne diseases such as cholera, diarrhoea, dysentery and typhoid; prevention of mosquito and black fly larvae from maturing; prevention of water contamination; access to potable, safe water; skills transfer; and job creation.

Collectively, the board and regional general managers of Maru-A-Pula have extensive experience and qualifications in various industries, which include water treatment, environmental affairs, accounting and traditional affairs. It is these skill-sets which enable Maru-A-Pula to offer all-inclusive AMD effluent and other water treatment solutions.
