Noel Chomolo joined Wesley College faculty in 2019. Prior to his appointment to Principal, he worked as Lecturer and Head of Department for our Business and Entrepreneurship programs. His entrepreneurial background has been integral to the early development of Tukuwe, Wesley College’s new Entrepreneurial Center.


Noel describes himself as “an entrepreneur, an academic, and a Christian.”  Noel says that he has always been interested in putting his faith into action, and he has long volunteered with the Anglican church and youth programming.


Why did he choose to fill this role as Principal of Wesley College?


“I have always wanted to pursue a professional career that transforms the lives of people, and I always want to be part of growth and change. Wesley College provides me with an opportunity,” he told us.


How does he see God’s promises to Wesley College being fulfilled over the next few years?


“With the proper investment and development, Wesley College has a very good competitive advantage to grow into a big university. It is a Church institution, in the city center, and it is affordable in comparative terms. In the next few years, we can reach out to the community with high-quality, practical education.”


Noel and his wife, Esther, have three young children, ages 7, 4, and 2. We are happy for all of them to be part of the Wesley College Family.
