PROFESSOR JANNIE LOUW and Hamilton Naki were my guides and greatest helpers throughout my postgraduate surgical career. "Hami" Naki was born on June 26, 1926, in the district of Kentani in what was then Transkei. He was 1 of the 3 children of Mduna and Ainei. He attended school near his home and completed standard 6 (junior high school) at age 14 years. He worked with his parents for a few years and then came to Cape Town, South Africa, at age 18 years to seek employment. His first job was to help in the garden of the University of Cape Town, and his specific task was to roll the grass tennis courts.
