Mr. Yongama Madyibi



Master of Regional Development Studies

 Toyo University

I studied at Toyo University (Tokyo), Master of Regional Development Studies.

My research thesis was on “Social Housing in South Africa: Assessing Walmer Link and Fairview Link housing projects in meeting the objectives of the Social Housing Act of 2008”.


I chose to study in Japan because I was interested in area of Education and training, Local Economic Development, Entrepreneurship and wanted to learn from their experience supporting current Japan.

After graduation, I came back to my home country and now I am working as Consultant/ Pretoria Office Manager for IC Net Limited, a Japanese consulting firm in international development area.
