Msimanga was a taxi driver before he enrolled with his diploma in marketing.
“Working with school going children transporting them every day challenged to go back to school. I wanted to be a living example to them how important it is to study. People think taxi drivers are not educated. I want to be a motivation to them. Today that I am graduating it is a motivation enough to persuade them into the right direction while they are still young,” Msimanga said.
He said as a bread winner, it was difficult decision to make but he knows choosing education was the best investment.
“I have lost my father and as a result I have become the bread winner looking after my mother and my sisters’ children. I know after graduating I stand a better chance to get a better job that will enable me take care of my children and family.”
