My name is Vuyani Mathe, a 28-year-old boy from KwaZulu-Natal. I finished grade 12 at Ekukhuleni High school and proceeded to obtain a Diploma in Agricultural Science from Cedara College of Agriculture and a B.Tech Degree in Agricultural Management from University of South Africa. I am a registered Natural scientist with the South African Council for Natural Scientific Professions (SACNASP) in the Agricultural science field.
