Zungu broke the mould and claimed the Number one title at the WorldSkills Provincial Competition in Plumbing, held in August last year, an achievement she is extremely proud of. To her, this proves female artisans are capable of taking their places in the field of plumbing.
Her success at WorldSkills has paved the way for Zungu to compete at the WorldSkills South Africa National Competition to be held at the Durban International Convention Centre (ICC) from 23-25 February 2019. Should Zungu win at the Nationals, she and other artisans in the various categories will represent South Africa at the WorldSkills International Competition in Kazan, Russia in August later this year.
She has sought the assistance of Majuba Technology Centre plumbing expert Sanele Nkosi, in preparation for the National Competition. Speaking to Nkosi, he explains how he is preparing Zungu for the big day. “By using different examples from the internet, and not just college material helps the students gain more experience. “I have confidence in Zungu’s ability and we will work hard together to achieve our best,” he concludes.
