Zhou told The Mirror that he lost his mother when he was doing Grade 3. He lost his father in 2014 when he had just completed his primary education and he had to work at Mnene Mission during school holidays to raise fees for his A Levels studies. He was the second best student in the school.
“My mother passed away when I was in Grade 3 after a divorce. My uncle (my father’s young brother) took over my fees when my father died in 2014. My uncle assisted until I got to Form 3 when BEAM started to pay my school fees. My uncle is not employed and there was no hope for me to proceed to Advanced Level. Fortunately, Rev Munyaradzi Nyakudya of the African Apostolic Church, who was an economics teacher at Mnene appealed to the head so I could remain at school and work for my school fees,” said Zhou.
Rev Nyakudya pleaded with well-wishers to help Zhou whom he described as brilliant.
Zhou can be contacted on +263788817715
