A fourth year Bachelor of Science in Information System student at the Polytechnic, Jones Kumchenga has proved that students can go an extra mile in using what they learn in class by penetrating into the security technologies business.

Kumchenga who installs Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) for government and big companies, started as a small business of stationery photocopying and printing. He later decided to venture into security technologies after teaching himself through Internet tutorials on how CCTV installation is done.

 “ I have never learned this in class, but I acquired business knowledge which made me do a demand analysis.  I just thought about doing this with the help of my friend Fred Kalonga. With the basics he told me, I improved my skills with the downloaded tutorials,” Kumchenga explained.

Since he started the Security Technologies business in 2018, he has installed CCTVS for organizations like Farmers World, DGS oil, and other government department.

“Some of the core services which we deliver now are the installation of CCTVs, access controls, gate automation and other security technologies,” he explained.

It is through his work that he was featured on the “Zimakhala Bwanji” Television program on Times Television.

Zimakhala Bwanji producer and presenter Faith Kamtambe Kadzanja described Jones as a talented young man who is so determined to achieve his goals.

“When we booked him for an interview I did not even know that he is a Polytechnic student. I am sure that with his vision and determination he will be one of the best in the ICT field in the country,” she said.

Kumchenga also run a stationery business called Konnes Tech Systems with his friends.
