I'm good at...management and administration work.

I'm very bad at...tolerating people who do not keep time.

The most surprising thing that happened to me is...when a teacher requested me to secure admission for him at the university. When he rejected the offer, I ended up joining the institution.

A common misconception of me is...I am unapproachable.

One of my worst childhood fears was...losing my parents.

My ideal night out is...going out for dinner with my family at a quiet place.

In another life I would have been....a preacher.

If I was a politician, I would...........put the interest of the people before everything else.

The best age to be is....40. That is when life begins.

My greatest regret is...I married very late.

The best part of my job...is organising and coordinating, which leads to good results.

Historical figure I most identify with....anti-apartheid icon and former South African President Nelson Mandela. I like his humility and forgiving nature.

Living person I most admire....US President Barack Obama.

My greatest achievement is....raising my own children, who have excelled in life.

My favourite writer is...Ngugi wa Thiongo.

My lowest point of misery was.........when my mother died of cancer in 1995.

My greatest possessions are...salvation and my family. They mean everything to me.

If I was to die in five minutes, my last words would be...in everything, give thanks to God.
