With this achievement, his dreams could certainly come true.

He said at that time, it was not the first time that he had been criticised for taking too many subjects. His teachers and classmates always criticised him for taking 20 O Level subjects.

“I worked hard and defied the odds; I faced a lot of criticism from some teachers and classmates over the number of subjects I was studying but I had faith in God

.Mavetera was born to Muchemwa Mavetera and Elizabeth Mavetera in 2004. His father works in the diaspora while his mother is a housewife. He has one sibling, a young brother Tawananyasha Mavetera who is doing Form 1 at Ruya Secondary School.

The Gutu Whizz kid did his primary education at Hamilton in South Africa before transferring to Ralph Junior school in Harare where he attained five units. He then enrolled at Ruya Adventist for his secondary education.

“I have been the overall best student across my classes since grade 1 but I faced difficulties with Shona and General paper when I moved South African to Zimbabwe.

“I am grateful to my parents, friends, Ruya Chaplin Pastor Utete and teachers who went the extra mile with me. My parents taught me to pray for wisdom when I was growing up. Hard work and divine intervention are my reasons for success,” said Mavetera. - Online Sources
