A Native of Mookane, he has built his reputation as a Simmental Breeder of note. Like a good percentage of Batswana families he grew up where Agriculture was a way of survival. A Boxer in his younger days, he even represented Botswana on the International scene. The sport taught him resilience and gave him the appreciation of what hard work can do.   He is a great testament of how farming in the communal areas can still yield good results if one is dedicated. In this episose he talks about everything from stud breeding to managing  farm workers. The Mookane area is a fertile area with plenty of underground water.  This has enable various agricultural activities in the area that include horticulture. Raised by a single parent himself, he has tremendous respect for women and the role the play and can potentially play in the Agricultural industry.
