I was born on 1st January 1981 in Silukwiya village, Macha chiefdom. Am born in the family of eight (8) with me being the seventh born.
I grew up and did my primary school Singani staying with our third born elder brother from 1990 to 1999. My brother could not afford paying for me during my secondary school. This made me to move to Macha and continued at Frances Davidson secondary School.
To raise my school fees, my mother used to sell traditional medicine specifically for women. My stepfather is a retired teacher and small-scale farmer and contributed greatest to my education through his retirement salary and sometimes after selling maize. I used to do photographing and taking chickens to Lusaka to raise money for my education. Am the only educated person in the entire family of eight.
I attempted to go to college to study ICT. My family could not manage to pay for my first semester examination fees and I therefore stopped my course. In February 2005, I joined LinkNet and started learning computer hardware. I continued excelling in LinkNet and worked as computer technician in different fields.
I marriage my dear wife in 2007 and now life with two children.
I have no good professional qualification but have hope that with God and well-wisher help, I dream to go school and Business Administration specifically in Project Management as my professional career and future my knowledge within field of interest.
