We asked Koketso a couple of questions to get to know him a little better:

Koketso: “The structure, professionalism, and the impact it brings to the Province. We must maintain a vision to give something back to the Province. We need to dispatch ultimate goals and uphold standards”.

Koketso: “When I am not watching TV (Koketso loves watching current affairs, sports, the home channel, food network, and national geographic), I love playing with my kids. I am also an aspiring photographer and love taking photographs that convey an actual message”.

Koketso: “Always try and be peaceful and ultimately give more of yourself. Walk in silence and let your actions speak louder than any words”.
