William Mumba, 2008

“I am forever in debt to the Julian Baring family for making my dreams to further my studies a reality. I have been given the responsibility to head a major JV exploration program, on the Zambia/Congo DRC border, between African Eagle Resources plc and Phelps Dodge. The whole experience at Rhodes has changed the way I look at life – I am more confident about technical discussion with any geologist from anywhere in the world. Most important is that my bank account has seen an increase of which if someone told me I would be getting this much some time back, I would have thought they are dreaming.”
