He has engaged and collaborated with high-ranking officials and dignitaries from the South African Embassy and the South African executive director office at the World Bank to discuss a number of topics impacting South Africa, such as technology, education, and economics.

He is currently the chair and co-creator of the Mzansi Staff Society, a staff association consisting of over a hundred South African staff members from the World Bank and the IMF. This society’s goals are to engage as South Africans and discuss various challenges in the country and celebrate South African successes. Before joining the World Bank in 2016, Mr. Bomvu worked as a Solutions Architect and Consultant for IBM, MTN, Multichoice, Vodacom, Standard Bank, SITA Inc, Telesure Group, and more.

He was born and raised in the Eastern Cape between Umtata and Butterworth. He is married to Siyabulela “Asakhe” Bomvu, and they both have two daughters Liyema and Aluhle, who all stay in the USA with him. His journey has earned him recognition with Mancosa, who has, over the past year, used his story as part of an ad campaign to help inspire many South Africans to also work towards achieving their dreams.
