About Me

Let me tell you a little bit about myself

  • 19 Century

    Where I come from

    I was born in Mpumalanga at Malelane, in Kamhlushwa township. I started my schooling at Matsafeni Primary School and then went to attend my high school at Mahhushe Agricultural High School where I completed as the best learner and obtained a Mathematics distinction of 92%.

  • 2004

    My career began

    I got my medical degree at MEDUNSA in 2004 and worked as an intern in Helen Joseph Hospital in Johannesburg, I later worked as a Community Officer Doctor in Mammetlake Hospital in Mpumalanga. I then worked as a sessional Doctor in Witbank Hospital in Mpumalanga, Dilokong Hospital in Burgersfort, I worked full time in Tembisa Hospital. I have also worked in Carstenhof which is in Midrand, Louis Pasteur Hospital in Pretoria. I opened a private clinic called Makasi Prime Health in Olifantsfontein which is in Midrand that I eventually left in 2008 to be the head of the Emergency unit in Tshepo Themba Private Hospital Emergency Unit.

  • 2008-current

    What I do now

    Due to the success of that unit, I was offered the opportunity by the Clinix Health Group to also run Lesedi Private Hospital and replicate the same success of reliability and good service as in Tshepo-Themba Private Hospital. I am still running the emergency unit in Tshepo Themba which has grown in stature and efficiency and currently busy establishing the unit as the most effecient and patient friendly emergency unit.
