What are you planning to spend your transfer on?
I plan to build a new house, buy furniture, pay school fees and to invest in business
What is the achievement you are proudest of?
The achievement am proudest of is building this mabati roofed house. Initially we lived in a dilapidated grass thatched house.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship am facing now is the burden of sickness. I am living on ARVs. This prevents me from participating in some casual jobs because the body is weak.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the evening when I get paid for a casual job.
