I am a young driven and women from a small town of Mbizana in the Amampondo region of the Eastern Cape, a town with very rich heritage.

I am currently working am working on the biological control of Water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes), using phytopathogens to enhance the insect biological control agent, Megamelus scutellaris, for biocontrol.
