A car needs more than fuel to run

“I fix cars like I am the one who is going to drive them”. This statement exudes the passion that 24-year-old Mahlogonolo Mokgolo has for her work.

Mokgolo is a Motor Mechanics apprentice at Kgabo Cars Mechanical workshop in Soshanguve. Her hard work and resilience saw the owner of Kgabo Cars, Isaac Boshomane, register a business for her so that she can run her own workshop upon qualifying as an artisan.

“I was ready to write a trade test earlier this year, but due to the COVID-19 restrictions, the test has been postponed to January 2021. Although this may have been a demotivating factor for many, I chose to look at it in a positive light because I get the opportunity to be thoroughly prepared for the test set by my mentors, Aubrey Sepeng and Emmanuel Boshomane,” she explains.
