Profession and educational background
I am a researcher, with MSc Soil and Environmental Management, BSc Hons Geography and Environmental Sciences.

Reasons for taking up post?
I have great love for the sport of rugby, and with younger faster players coming up the ranks, am finding another niche in the sport.

My goal is to become Gweru and National Rugby League Chairperson. I apply the SMART principles.
What has been your biggest challenge?
My biggest challenge was fighting boardroom wars in the NRL board to gain promotion whilst the team was reaping good results on the field of play. This was achieved by using a combination of education, social, and business acumen.
What was the best advice you were ever given?
Take up every chance when the opportunity presents itself.
Do you have a saying or motto that you live your life by?
With God everything is possible and everything falls in place.
