Capson Phuti Kabe was born on 12 August 1960. He was a disciplinarian, a witty public speaker and a seasoned speech writer. Before joining the police, he was a teacher and even a school principal. He was then head-hunted to join the former Lebowa Police. He rose through the ranks and was promoted and he headed the management information coordination centre of Limpopo SAPS.

He then became station commander and led project Harmony in the new South African Police Service.

Capt (Dr) Kabe was elected the first Secretary-General of POLMUSCA in 1992 and became its National Chairperson in 1999. After he had left the SAPS, he was appointed at the Johannesburg Metro Police Department (JMPD) to head its Employee Relations and was based at Group Finance of the City of Johannesburg before he passed away on 27 December 2020.

In his tribute speech to commemorate the life of Capt Kabe, Asst-Comm (ret) Willie Ngobeni expressed his gratitude to the Kabe family for having allowed his participation as co-founder of both Dr SJ Khoza Music NCP and POLMUSCA. "His selflessness, strategic and analytic contribution will forever be remembered. Dr Kabe we will miss your determination to the organisation, your dedication, your humbleness, your smile and most of all, your love for choral music." He conveyed his sincere condolences to the family of Capt Kabe. "On behalf of both music organisations, I would like to convey our heartily condolences to the Kabe family for the loss of such a dear husband, father and uncle. To friends and colleagues, Dr Kabe may no longer be with us physically but his deeds will always remain with us. We will continue to pray to God Almighty God to providing guidance and support to family in this trying time and heal their broken hearts."
