My Life

I don’t regret that I walked to school 12 kilometres per day barefoot without a raincoat or umbrella. I also don’t regret attending most of my primary and secondary schooling under various trees. What made me who I am today (a middle class, Senior Manager, Scholar, and Published Author) is the sum of all the hardships and humiliations I endured during my childhood and adult life. I share the same sentiment with Dmitry Medvedev who once said: “I do not feel that I have become a person who is addicted to publicity like a drug. I do not feel a physical need to always be in the limelight. At the same time, I have changed in certain ways. Otherwise, I would never have been able to do what I’m doing now. Such are the rules of politics: the nation must know about the actions of those in power – we did not come up with these rules, it is not up to us to change them, and that’s probably for the best”

This is some of the work that I’m most proud of:

The Office of Rabelani Dagada

I’m also and avid author, and one of the books I have written is:
