Kamogelo aims high

By Juley Rakgotho

Hustling for a 27yr old Kamogelo Chuma started back in his teenage years, at that time he sold sweets and snacks at school.
“Failing Grade 10 and 11 was a wake-up call for me, and very hurtful,” says a flamboyant Chuma.
With a zeal to succed, he did not despair and went to Further Education and Learning (FET) from 2009 to 2013 where he studied Civil Engineering.
Kamogelo later developed a love for installing cabinets, glamour code plastering, fitting ceilings and lights. Realising his multi talents, he went to register a business, under the trade name, Green Africa Art Space Pty Ltd.
The company now employs 2 full time semi skilled workers, with a mandate of transforming houses into beautiful homes.
The company is profitable at the moment, however like most start-ups, he has challenges.
He does not have a mentor at the moment and modern equipment to speed up his projects.
When asked where he wants to be after 5 years, Kamogelo responds, “I want to build a business empire, employ 50 people and be a billionaire.”
Youths aged 18 to 35 years who have an up and running business, are advised to go to The National Youth Development Agency (NYDA) to find out how they could benefit from their services.
