Zakhele has been miming since the age of 13 years. He first got inspired to mime when a community outreach program focusing on artistic miming was launched in his community. After being trained and mentored by Nicky Jackson, Zakhele started performing on his own and eventually made his way to the V&A waterfront. He has been performing at the V&A since 2005. He brags that President Jacob Zuma once was so impressed by his talents that he was rewarded with a R200 note tip from the statesman.GP0|#551467a5-38e8-46c5-a1c3-902adb447794;L0|#0551467a5-38e8-46c5-a1c3-902adb447794|Victoria Wharf Shopping Centre Garage;GTSet|#60007c22-8a91-455e-bc6e-0ad9db2fcbcf073 115 5888N/<img alt="" src="/sites/waterfrontcontent/Event%20Images/Zakhele%20the%20mime.jpg" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><img alt="" src="/sites/waterfrontcontent/Event%20Images/Zakhele%20the%20mime_mainResized.jpg" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />GP0|#a75a7c7b-8191-4956-bea1-3f2159d0dbd5;L0|#0a75a7c7b-8191-4956-bea1-3f2159d0dbd5|zakhele-the-mime;GTSet|#3b7cbd27-cfb1-4643-b32f-61054606b41f
