After independence he did his secondary schooling locally at Gwen’ombe Langwani and joined the Muonde research team in 1986. He has interspersed a life time of field research in Mazvihwa with teaching, working with ENDA’s participatory agronomy program, serving as the area’s elected Ward Councilor, and field studies in other areas of Zimbabwe. In 2012 he spent four months as a Visiting Scholar in ESPM with sponsorship from the Canadian IDRC.
