One more month to go before 2021 academic year begins. I wouldn’t say that the biggest event I look forward to in 2021, no! those times have long passed for me. I just want to do my final year and get along with life, by the way – I can’t study forever. It’s pretty sad that, I’m among those students who’ve been studying for more than half a decade with no prosperity. Yes, such students do exist in South Africa – I’m one of them, thanks to the selfishly useless corrupt government.

My six years as a uni student started in 2010. After graduating matric, I registered to one of the top universities of technology in the country where I studied electrical engineering. I was the first in my family, and probably my community, to have had a privilege to go there. I spent a total of three years there (a record time); nonetheless, it was wasteful three years. My national diploma certificate has now turned into a decorating piece on a wall - probably to stand there for the longest time, and each time reminds me of the three wasteful years of study I'd experienced.

However, because I’m a man of persistence, passion and a go getter - I decided to go back to uni in 2018. This time, Wits school of education accepted my offer. Another giant university in the country and the rest of Africa. I’m currently in my fourth and final year of study (in December, if we count the other six years, will total to seven years of study). I’m now 32 years old. I should have had luxury life in my early 20s, but it’s all doom and gloom. For how many more years should I expect to live in the darkness? Well, if you’re a patient individual like me who don’t mind waiting - let’s wait together. Hopefully, exactly today in 2022 I would be able to share my progress with you – whish me Goodluck!
