Hail, hail a Northerner beating all in South Africa! We are a blessed people who are hated in their own country for our diligence and intellect. Topping cambridge in SA is no mean achievement!ut Zamunyasa ndi mfiti! Quota or no quota, we conquer! For those who come from the North, there are many geniuses in the North who are being trampled upon by the quota system please let’s come up with scholarships for them to go abroad and learn so that we can beat the evil quota system!

Amazing! I really wish you a great future boy. Congratulations to the Sibande family too for such a huge sacrifice in putting this brilliant boy at such a prestigious school! This is what I believe in: “Building boys and girls is better than mending men and women.” Let’s keep investing in our boys and girls starting from family level. These are suckers that will make the orchard after the bananas are gone! Congrats!
