I broke my political tooth as a student in the former ML Sultan Technikon in 1998, where I joined AZAPO student formation – Azanian Student Convention (AZASCO).

I have also been deployed by the organization to serve in some extra organizational political activities which include among others being a representative and sensitive observer in the Multi Political Party Intervention Committee (MPPIC) and Provincial and Local Party Liaison Committee (PLC), ensuring a safe political environment and relatively free and fare elections in the province of KwaZulu Natal.
