Twin brothers from Khayelitsha, Wandile and Wanele Ganya, graduated as medical doctors from Stellenbosch University on Tuesday.
The two refused to let their circumstances stand in their way. Throughout their schooling years they relied on their mother’s wages who worked as a domestic worker.
They are the recipients of the Rector’s Award for Succeeding Against the Odds.
Speaking to CapeTalk's John Maytham, Wandile described their journey to become medical doctors as challenging.
