American preacher Joyce Meyer once said,” Patience is not simply the ability to wait-it’s how we behave while we’re waiting.”.

Samuel Pilirani Gomani, the Head of Programs at Seventh – day Adventist Radio and Television is a living example of a person who patiently waits.

He further went on to study Motor-Vehicle Mechanics at Poly Technical (2002) and later Information Technology at Digital Systems in the year of our lord 2003.

His journey into the media industry started in 2008 when he started Volunteering at SDA Radio as Presenter. He volunteered for five good years.

” l worked as a volunteer from 2008-2013. And my wife was the one financing the family which is against the African culture and tradition, a Man is suppose to source bread for the family not a woman,” said Gomani.

As the saying goes ”patience can cook a stone’’, Gomani learned various skills while working as a volunteer a development which forced the SDA radio management to offer him a full time job and put him on pay roll.
