Sisa Ngebulana was born in 1966 in Mthatha. His father died in a trucking accident. His grandfather assumed the responsibility of raising him.

Their home had about twelve and fifteen people, including cousins, sisters, and brothers. His grandparents made sure they were all working. His grandmother would wake them up very early and give them an errand to run.

Growing up under such conditions made him learn time management. He spent time too at his grandfather’s dealer store in the village. His father also had a brick-making factory, where he helped to make plans and budgets.

Sisa and four other grandchildren headed off to the university. His grandmother had saved to pay only a year for each of them. After entering the university, they were to score high in school to get bursaries or loans.
