WALKING THE TALK AND TALKING THE WALK
Continuing to feel determined can be incredibly difficult when we encounter obstacles and setbacks. From losing weight to quitting smoking, it takes an incredible amount of determination to achieve the goals we set for ourselves. From selling Japanese cars, to owning a fleet of bakkies and co-founding Maletsunyane Braai Festival, Tanki Pule, famously known as Tichere Pule is one example that doing what you can, with what you have, where you are is key. He credits his success to his mother who taught and advised him to work hard.
A 37 year old Tanki Pule was born in the rural Tloha-re-bue village in Mokhotlong to now both late Mr Tseko and Mrs Ma-ah Pule. He is the 6th of 7 siblings. Pule went to Khubelu Primary, Mapholaneng High School and Emmanuel High School in Leribe respectively. Later enrolled for a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Education with the National University of Lesotho and graduated in 2007. He got a teaching job at Maseru Day High School right after graduation and he is still working there to date. He later on went to the University of KwaZulu Natal for a Bachelor of Education Honors in Curriculum Studies. Tichere Pule is very passionate about teaching, one thing that is keeping him at his job even though his businesses are doing well.
