I enrolled for an electrical engineering course at the Durban University of Technology (then called Natal Technicon) and moved to the Berea Residence of the University. After completing the first semester I was forced to discontinue my studies as I needed to work because of financial pressures. By then I was already performing limited radio / tv repairs for the African staff of the Berea campus from my room and after I left I started working at Olivetti as an apprentice. Later on, I established a working relationship with one of the biggest pawn shops in Durban called Durban Brokers, where I created a workshop where I repaired electronic goods.
1990 -1992 – I enrolled in a private institution called Omnitec Institute, where I furthered my studies in electronics.
