Biographical Information


Hero: â€œI wanted to be like (athletes) Caster (SEMENYA) and Mamoroallo (TJOKA). These two great personalities really inspired me and I would want to emulate their achievements and, if possible, go even further.â€? (sundayexpress.co.ls, 2 Aug 2015)

PERMIT ISSUES
Her athletics dream was nearly shattered after she was forced to return home from South Africa in January 2015, due to study permit problems. Had been studying at Bloemfontein Trompsburg Secondary School for two years and training under a professional coach when she was forced to return home after failing to renew her study permit. But the 20-year-old put this disappointment behind her “Why do I have to cry over something I have no control over? I admit it was painful that I lost a great opportunity to stay in Bloemfontein where I was exposed to abundant athletics resources, but I have since moved on; it is now water under the bridge and I have made peace with it." (sundayexpress.co.ls, 2 Aug 2015)


NICE WORK
"I have always been fond of athletics and, at first, was running for fun. But when I was selected to represent my district in a national competition at Setsoto Stadium in 2010, I realised I could actually earn a living out of athletics. It was then that my interest in the sport grew and I started to take it seriously." (sundayexpress.co.ls, 2 Aug 2015)
