Talent and discipline are important, but so is humility, said co-founder of Washirika Holdings, Romeo Kumalo.

Kumalo was the guest speaker at the Faculty of Business and Management Sciences graduation, where diplomas and degrees were conferred to graduates in the fields of Management, Human Resource Development, Human Resources Management and Business Administration.

A business tycoon, Kumalo urged graduates to live a life or service, as well as to invest their time wisely.

 “Invest time and effort in knowing what your passion is, because your passion makes you see opportunities where others don’t.”

He also told the graduating class to remain positive, adding that while he was starting his own company, Washirika Holdings, he had to always try and have a positive outlook.

“Optimism opens you up to new ideas.”

Kumalo encouraged graduates to study further, be curious, take actions, choose wisely and to always be kind.
