"Being from the dusty streets of Washbank, a village in the small town of Umzimkhulu, it’s truly humbling that one has come this far.
"In December 2016 I was hospitalised for close to two months and that experience taught me to trust in God and appreciate those around me. My life would have ended right there but God said no, I have greater plans for you," Majola captioned the post.

Today, the doctoral candidate has no doubt about the wonders God has worked in his life. Majola says he knows all the difficulties that go into pursuing a PhD and went on to thank his lovely family for helping him through.

"I appreciate God almighty, my wife, family and mother in particular, friends, my church and colleagues who provided all kinds of support. A PhD journey needs academic, emotional, moral and spiritual support, without which one may find it difficult to cope. Focus, determination and trusting God is all I did. Enkosi Bawo."
