nearby canal, I knew I could not swim but anyway dived into the water. While disappearing for some
time in the water I could clearly saw how my spirit left my body and look at the drowned body, blown up
with water. I was later informed that I was saved by my elder brother.
Growing up as a youngster not always having something to eat, I remembered when I was in grade 3 me
and a friend will plan our next meal at school during break times. I would tell him to target those pupils
having bread to start an argument, I will appear as the saviour of that pupil and because of my act of
bravery the pupil will offer me bread I will than share it with my friend.
Life was tuff, I started working as a garden boy in the houses of the white people at the age of 12 years
direct after school. I wanted to leave school at the age of 14 years, because I was earning money as a
garden boy. I reminded myself of my circumstances and that encourage me to complete school, thinking
how hard my father was working to provide for all 13 children and how tuff life was.

I became involved in school boycotts and was also a freedom fighter always in front of boycotts and was
part of the masses. During my secondary school years I also became involved in sports and church
activities. I knew when I finish school I won’t be able to further my studies due to my circumstances and
my poor background. It was always my dream to become a lawyer.

months on the job in 1993 he resigned from the SADF.

me and that one day I will earn lots of money. I could not understand but I was motivated what God is
about to do in my life”.
