Lelethu Mzila

Lelethu is a, bold, charismatic and dedicated individual who enjoys interacting with people at different levels.

I have great interpersonal skills and pay attention to detail.

In college I majored in Information Sciences and have since worked in the Information sector for more than 8 years but because of my love for property and a desire to serve I have recently(currently) ventured into the property sector.

I value self-motivation and development and keeping true to one’s self. I take pride and gratification in helping others.

‘Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world’
