News about his enrollment went abuzz with fellow students posting photos of the young braniac on social media outlets including Facebook.

Nyasa Times has learnt that Chibaka was born in the country’s capital Lilongwe where he attended early school by age four.

He completed high school last year aged only 14, and turns 15 in March.

Chibaka told the Namibian Sun that he is “following in my father’s footsteps.”

Said Chibaka: “From grade 1 I would always tell my teacher that I will become a civil engineer. So I’m on the path of accomplishing my dreams.”

Faculty of Engineering and Information member at Unam, Paulina Kashihakumwa confirmed Chibaka’s enrollment.

He said the university did not have “any age restrictions.” –Additional reporting by Fikameni Mathias, Namibian Sun.
