Phillip Ramphisa grew up in a typical rural South African village. Saying his life was difficult is an understatement.
He grew up in a big family. His father had two wives. He had nine brothers and sisters as well as a mother who was schizophrenic. His mom was never at home due to illness. When he was 11, his father left his family to live with his second wife.
When Phillip grew up, he didnt have a present mother and father. The only support he had were his brothers and sisters. They were children themselves, facing the same situation he was facing. There was nobody to look after them. There were no role models. There was nobody around to give discipline.
Nobody took care of us. There was never any money. I would often go to bed without supper. Or wake up without breakfast, says Phillip.
I had to walk to school in shoes that were torn and showed my toes. I had to walk 14 kilometres every day to get to class in shoes in which my toes stuck out of. Thats not fun. I had to ask my friends for their old clothes. Thats not fun either. My self-esteem dropped. I felt very small
Today Phillip is fortunate to have two masters degrees including a Masters Degree in Business Administration from Wits University. Phillip is currently studying for his Doctoral Degree in Business Leadership and has held management positions in various multi national companies.
