All my life I have valued and cherished the knowledge I acquire from the Bible and I am one of Jehovah's Witnesses.

I like my country Zambia. Natural disasters do not occur in this country.

My Familiy

I have a wife and five children. My wife worked for the mines as an artisan machinist and later changed to do engineering drawing. She currently works as a draftswoman.

  • I worked for the mines for 10 years
  • I quit to join the training industry in 2002.

Why I joined this workshop

We are in an information age and knowledge is abundant. It is important that I keep abreast of developments and current understanding of issues. In the search for knowledge I need to have research skills and sources that will enable me achieve learning objectives in the most efficient and effective manner. The workshop will provide me with the skills to do just that. I know my further studies to acquire another qualification will be a lot easier with skills and access to Wiki-wiki facilities.
