I own a 3000ha farm in the Zambian wilds where there are no electricity or cell networks easily to be accessed . I started driving tractors as early as 10yrs old. I finished in an academic high school and could go to University where I obtained a Horticultural degree. Then followed a 2 year compulsory army training and deployment where I chose to work as an agricultural extension officer in backward rural areas. Then followed a 4 year job in the Dept. of Agriculture in South Africa also as an extension officer. Seeing opportunities in Zambia after the democratic elections in 1990 I moved to Zambia and obtained 3000ha tribal lands that I have converted into a conservancy. It is here that I developed Soil Bio-Muti as a soil remedy looking at what is being done in the world and how things work in nature
