Lim’s top learner has a head for numbers, bright future

Malamba Nemavhadwe is the top matriculant in Limpopo.

LIMPOPO –  This last born in a family of four plans to study actuarial science.

Malamba (17) received distinctions in Tshivenda, English, life sciences, geography, mathematics, science, and life orientation and attributes this achievement to having enough time to prepare for the exams. Along with that, she adds, her parents and teachers were highly supportive and kept her motivated.

“I am excited about the journey which lies ahead, facing and overcoming all the new challenges which await me at Wits. I am determined to complete my degree in time and with flying colours,” she said.

Her mother, Fulufhedzani, is an educator at Tshidzivhe Primary School and said they are still in a celebratory mood because of her daughter’s outstanding results.

“I’m happy with her choice to study actuarial science even though we were hopeful that she would choose to study in a medical direction. I am proud of all my children, the first-born obtained a B.Com degree in Accounting from the University of South Africa (Unisa), my second-born obtained a BSc and my third-born is completing her diploma in chemical engineering in Gauteng,” she said.

“Malamba is the only girl in the family and she is following in her three brothers’ footsteps. She has securely occupied the top position in her class since Gr 8 and I am over the moon because she received a bursary from Allan Gray to further her studies.

Tshivhase Secondary School Principal, Fhatuwani Maselesele, said he is just as proud of Malamba’s achievement.

“It is encouraging to other learners to see that hard work pays off. Malamba is a shining example of someone who takes her education, and future, seriously,” she said.
