About Me

I am a young visionary from a small village town in Eastern Cape who has always been passionate about touching lives and being able to participate in the process to eradicate the variety of scourges that continue to plague our societies. My keen interest is on leadership and socially responsible entrepreneurship where everyone wins,particularly the historically excluded section of our society from economic participation. My belief is that African problems need African solutions. I owe my being and world view to uMakhulu wam (my grandmother) who continues to be my pillar and cistern of knowledge.
