Giving up on her law dream was never an option for Mudzuli

Mudzuli Rakwambo said her dream is to grow her practice while impacting the lives of both her employees, clients and those who see her as a role model.

LIMPOPO – Being the first attorney, notary and conveyancer in her family and the first notary and conveyancer in her village and being admitted as an attorney in June 2019 after serving her articles in 2018/19, motivates Mudzuli Mubvafhi Rakwambo from the dusty village of Gondeni la-ha Mabilu outside Thohoyandou.

She qualified as a notary in November 2021 and as a conveyancer in July 2022.

Her career as an attorney began in 2018 when she completed her articles in Johannesburg and today, she is the director of Rakwambo MM Inc.

She holds an LLB degree from the University of Venda, and enrolled for the Law School for Notarial and Conveyancing exams, attending online mentorship classes.

After attempting notary for the fourth time, she finally passed on her fifth attempt. “I then enrolled for the conveyancing exam where I passed paper one on my first attempt and paper two on my second attempt. It is a dream come true because I have always wanted a triple admission and for me to achieve what others deem impossible, makes me feel proud of myself,” said Rakwambo.

She said her dream is to grow her practice while impacting the lives of both her employees, clients and those who see her as a role model.

“I would advise other young people that this journey is not an easy one and it requires someone who is a fighter. Giving up should never be an option. Finding a balance is not easy but I always tell myself that I can only do so much for a day. I have mastered the art of being patient with myself and finding that balance in both life and work expectations,” she said.

She said she was fortunate to complete her articles after finishing law school and passing the board exams on her first attempt, however, the challenge she faced was having the courage to write and pass the notarial examination after failing so many times.

“I come from a very supportive family. My parents and siblings are my biggest cheerleaders. Should it not be for them I do not think I would be where I am today,” she said. She concluded by advising young people, that giving up is not an option and should never be. Trust in God’s timing for your life. Stay in your lane and keep your own pace,” she concluded.
