My name is Sakhiwo Sam, but many know me by the name of ’’Sakies- uGaba’omkhulu ‘’. I’m originally from Eastern Cape, King Williams Town, famously known as ‘eQonce’. I matriculated eMgcamezulu high school. I did my BA degree, HDE (Higher Diploma in Education), Integrated Water Resource Management at the University of Western Cape (UWC). I also did an Advanced Certificate in Education majoring with Education management and Leadership at the University of Cape Town.
I am currently the Deputy Principal of Sinethemba Senior Secondary School. I am married with 3 kids. I enjoy watching sports during my free time, especially Soccer, as its one of my favourite sports. My favourite food is a nice crunchy green salad with chicken and my favourite colour is navy.
I was the first chairperson of Radio Zibonele. I’ve been involved in the radio industry for more than 20 years, and I’ve got to say, it is one of my most passionate things in the world. The passion I have for radio is beyond, especially being a sports radio commentator, as sports is one of my favourite things and commentating is one of my stupendous talents.
These factors both combined together, creates an absolutely great combination in which I am successfully great at practising. Radio and teaching have been the biggest factors that have played a really big role into my life, and I am grateful.
