Kingsley Mokatsane

Jonas Radiphoko "Oompie" Mokatsane of Rammulotsi was born in 1934 at Viljoenskroon. The last of nine children, he was a teacher for more than 20 years.

Mokatsane was married to Bessie Selloane "Antie" Phadi and they were blessed with five children, four girls and a boy.

He left the teaching profession to go into business.

His first business was a general dealer shop, named after his mother.

The business grew into a supermarket and he named it after his clan - Batlhaping.

As a visionary and business- minded person, he also started to operate in the taxi industry.

Mokatsane won a big tender from the health services to operate ambulances between Viljoenskroon, Kroonstad and neighbouring farms.

He opened a bottlestore and a tavern at Rammulotsi, which he also named after his mother.

He was the first person to run a funeral parlour in Rammulotsi township. His Thusong Funeral Services was a great success.

Mokatsane will be buried on Sunday at 7.30am at Rammulotsi
