As someone with a passion for human development, he started his career as an educator in 1979 and has quickly stepped up the ladder, having been appointed as the principal of E.H. Mogase Primary School since 1990.  During his career, he has amongst other things initiated the building of classrooms for the school and as Chairperson of the Bodibe Community Development Forum, his inputs led to the erection of Lekgetho Special School.
