I am evidence that hard work pays.”

Since his promotion, Mkhuma has played five games and has been doing well since football returned.

“I am always around senior players like Hlompho Kekana and Tiyani Mabunda as they advise me on stuff on and off the field. They are always telling me how to calm myself before the game and I must not be scared to make mistakes. Most of the time we talk about football but they also share their life experiences with me.”
