Upside of Failure

Relebogile Mabotja speaks to Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi about his Upside of Failure.

Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi looks back at his university days when he disappointed his parent's wishes by not studying to become a medical doctor.

Lesufi was chatting with Relebogile Mabotja on 702's Upside of Failure.

He said that his elder brother also wanted to become a doctor before going into exile during the apartheid regime.

The 53-year-old added that his love for politics made him bunk classes in university.

I disappointed them when I went to university. In first year, politics took care of me, so I neglected my studies, and I failed badly.

Panyaza Lesufi, MEC - Gauteng Education

They expected me to be a doctor, but my parents were not that learned to such an extend that to even know I was taking courses related to medicine. I have an elder brother who wanted to be a doctor, unfortunately, he went into exile to join a political party outside.

Panyaza Lesufi, MEC - Gauteng Education

So, they felt I would step in there and make the dream come true.
