It all started in 1995 upon Yamaha PW50, navigating my way through the farms of Notwane. I have since progressed not stop until today, where I have achieved the top spot for the 2017 Botswana off-road Championship, 2 finishes at Lesotho’s Roof of Africa, 4 Toyota 1000 Desert Race finishes (won the BMS division in 2018), as well as a 3rd place finish in the 2019 Kalahari Rally with 3 stage wins!!!
After completing my studies in Pretoria, I made the move back to my homeland where I joined the Gaborone Motor Club Committee. Together with the committee, we are striving to rejuvenate the Botswana off-road racing scene, giving back to the community that has given him so much in previous years.
So here I am, walking in the path of fellow Motswana champions before him… Mr Crosbie, Mr Branch and Mr Alexander… its safe to say that I have have some big boots fill. I have specifically chosen to do the ‘Malle Moto’ / “Unassisted” Class of Dakar, which I have been preparing for, to start the rally in in January 2022.
Why I need your support
In discussions with friends and family, the decision to race the Dakar was made on the basis that I may not get this chance again. With a successful and strong last few years of racing, together with good backing from fellow racers and the racing community, I decided that this was as good a time as any!
If you are able to help and contribute towards my Dakar dream, I would be eternally grateful for your efforts, and try to do my best to make you all proud! I truly believe that every Thebe/Cents counts as well as all the social media shares and likes! Small or big, your contribution will get me a step closer to that start line.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story and I look forward to having you in my Dakar corner!
