I was born on April 5th 1949 in Glencoe and have 3 sisters. We lived in Alexandra township till 1963 then moved to Fietas where we resided till August 1969. After getting married, I lived Actonville, Benoni till 1985 then moved to Jeppestown. In 2002 moved to Bezuidenhout Valley where I currently reside.
My primary schooling was done at Alex Coloured School and high school at Nirvana High till standard 7. I then attended Alexander Madressa and Saaberie Chisthy Madressa during high school.
I am an articulate, confident person who relishes challenges and working under pressure.
In 1982 I was awarded a RAU diploma in road transport and served on the South African Institute of driving instructors for 8 years teaching K53 learners.
In 1983 I achieved a Professional Articulated code 14 driver of the year award. I am presently doing general signage and branding from our office in Jeppestown.
I joined Madressa Zia-ul-Badr in 1990, it was fate that brought me to Jeppestown and I express my gratitude to Allah SWT for acquainting me with the community and more especially to Qari Moosa for recognising me and having confidence in me and granting me the opportunity to serve as a director of Madressa Zia Ul Badr
