Samnkelo is a trainee in the Lighthouse Academy.  He was born and bred in Khayelitsha, Cape Town, where he attended primary and secondary schools. He completed Grade 12 in 2012 and recently graduated as an LLB student at the University of the Western Cape. He enjoys watching sport (especially soccer!), and also spends his free time helping local high school students with their school work, particularly those studying commercial subjects.

Samnkelo is excited about joining Lighthouse because he believes exposure to the depth of experience within the Lighthouse team will be an excellent stepping stone for his career as a lawyer. He hopes that he will be able to contribute to the success and growth of the Academy.


  • LLB (Bachelor of Laws), University of the Western Cape (2017)
