ZENZO MOVES UP THE LADDER
Zenzo Moses Gambisa was born in Zimbabwe on October 25 1984. He started schooling in Zimbabwe until 2004 when he moved to South Africa following his father, James Gambisa a professor at Rhodes faculty of Environmental science.
In 2005 he enrolled at Rhodes to study towards the Bachelor of Pharmacy, and unfortunately, Moses failed his first year. Moses a true believer of the philosophy that everything happens for a reason is quite happy that he failed that year. It served him with an opportunity to be able to stay here in South Africa after completing his degree and be able to look for a job here. This was possible because his father, professor Gambisa was granted citizenship a year ago.
But in order for Moses to be allowed to practise as a pharmacist in S.A he had to get some recommendation letters for the Home Affairs department. He said that this is such a small letter but it cost him a year to wait for that letter. Finally he got it early this year and is waiting for his internship in a government’s provincial hospital which promises to come through in August.
Due to this situation his mother also was forced to leave her job in Zimbabwe to stay here and support her son while he was trying to find a job.
