Engineering graduate now finds solace in farming

 

Phineas Naledzani Ramabali, a 25-year-old civil engineering graduate, has taken a proactive approach to his career. Despite struggling to find employment in his field, he has diversified his skills by venturing into animal farming and vegetable growing.

Ramabali hails from Musina town. He completed his matric in 2021 and joined the Musina Farmers Association in 2022. He has since built a successful business, supplying goat meat to the Somali community in Musina town and pork to residents in the townships. However, he still seeks internships in civil engineering to complement his skills.

Ramabali's entrepreneurial journey is not without challenges. He faces water shortages and high fuel costs when delivering his produce to customers. Nevertheless, his determination and adaptability serve as an inspiration to others. His story highlights the importance of exploring alternative paths and developing diverse skills to achieve success.

According to Jeffrey Magwira, president of the Musina Farmers Association, youths around Musina should emulate Ramabali's initiative as that will keep them occupied and away from the streets.
