Other Achievements

Co-founded Thaba Naleli Energy (Pty) Ltd | 2016

Prospecting for shale gas and petroleum products in Lesotho.

Co-founded Lesotho Brick and Pave (Pty) Ltd | 2004

Lesotho Brick and Pave is a company doing business in the manufacture of concrete bricks of different sizes and form, pavers and earth retainers. It is a downstream industry of the stone crushing operation, Moradi (Pty) Ltd, which feeds it with its main material.

Founded Taung Ranches (Pty) Ltd | 1995

Taung Ranches was a cattle buying and selling, feedlot running, as well as a butchery operating concern. A successful enterprise that made a name in Maseru but, regrettably, fell victim to and had to close shop after the melt-down of the Lesotho economy following the political riots of 1998.

Founded Moradi (Pty) Ltd | During Private Time | 1981

Moradi (Pty) Ltd is Lesotho's biggest and leading dolerite stone mining and crushing concern which, from its initial plant in Morija, in the south of Lesotho, has fed the construction industry with superior quality crushed stone for the construction of buildings, roads and other infrastructural amenities. There is numerous structures, big and small, and vast stretches of tarred roads which all bear testimony to Moradi's many years of dilligent service. In time, it spawned a new crusher in Peka, in the north, and, in partnership with another company, the Lesotho Brick and Pave (Pty) Ltd which has already emerged as a dominant force in its sector.
