I S Ntekiso was born at Emthonjeni village in Lady Frere. I went to school at Mc Kays’ Nek Mission.

At the age of 21 in January 1980 I went to Carletonville, to West Driefontein mine. I went underground to drive a winch.

I became ill in 2011 and then left in 2012 because of my health and came back home to Emthonjeni. In April 2016, I met up with Mngcunube and was interested in what they were doing. When I heard that there is a post open I applied and since then I am working with them. I bought myself a sheep while I was working at the mine and now I have 18 sheep.
