Story of my life

Born in 1983 to Esther and Ephraim Mametja at Kgapane hospital, raised by my grandmother till age of 4, did my pre-school from 1987-1988 at Kgapane pre-school which was started by Mrs. Molokwane.

I then moved to W.M. Kgatla primary school where i did my Sub A (Grade 1) in 1989, then in 1990 i then moved to Mamanyoha Village (then Sekhula Village) where i started staying with my mom and dad and there i started my Sub B (Grade 2) at Mamanyoha Primary school the i attended there till Standard 5 (Grade 7)

IN 1996 i went to start my high school at Makgoka high school at Boyne which is under Z.C.C. church, that is where i met most of my friends Thabe Nkadimeng, Sidney Ramoroka, Richard Nkoana (MHDSRIP), Malatji Chris, Sello Boshielo, Ngwato Nkadimeng, Maggie Moroaswi (Nee Letswalo), Mokgadi Thwala (Nee.

I then moved to durban Nelson R. Mandela School of medicine which is under University of Kwazulu Natal (then University of Natal). While at university I met lot of different people from different backgrounds of life. I then joined SASCO which was under the leadership of the likes of Cde. Modiba Ali, Cde. Bandile Hadebe, Cde. Sibusiso Zuma (MHDSRIP). I was also an active member oand chairperson of TAC. After 2 years i have disagreements with the members of SASCO and i felt that my inputs were not appreciated i then decided to resign from politics. I also participated in a reasearch on anti-retrovirals when they were launched in South Africa which was conducted by Caprisa, working under Frncois Loggenberg and Mrs. Abdool Karim Quarissa. in 2005 I graduated from UKZN.

I worked in PMHC for two years whereby i felt i have gained a lot of knowledge and skills in terms of patient care and management.

In 2008 I started working in Van Velden hospital in Tzaneen town, that's where my interest in HIV?AIDS care grew even further. I spent 3 months working in HIV clinic solely and i enjoyed the interaction and the relationship i developed with the staff and the patients.
