Ten years ago, the man was just a village boy and today he is a doctorate holder. The young man's post caused quite a stir as some shared their opinions on it.

Wilfred Lindalo said:

"Kudos for the achievement. I must admit I failed to understand the correlation between your coming from a village and your PhD. I know a handful of people in a village in Southern Africa with PhDs though, and many others with none who have achieved a lot yet proud to have done it whilst staying put in their villages.Whatever you aim at can surely be achieved from anywhere."
