| June 17, 2015

Motor Vehicle Accident Fund (MVA) chief executive officer, Cross Kgosidiile, has commended Karowe Diamond Mine, for hosting cycle challenge.

Kgosidiile said in Letlhakane on June 13 that cycling challenge was a good initiative as more companies were now working towards investing on their employees’ health through the same initiative.

The challenge, he said, would drive the company towards success, citing that it would not only improve on profits, but on good working relations and a healthy human resource. Kgosidiile said cycling was also critical for travelling, saying use of bicycles as a mode of transport could immensely reduce road accidents.

Karowe Diamond Mine, Gerald Ndlovu, thanked the participants saying Karowe Diamond Mine cycle challenge and runwalk was also critical for establishing sound relationships between stakeholders and members of the community.

Ndlovu thanked cyclists who took part in the challenge, saying the objective behind the initiative was not to win but raise funds towards charity. The challenge that attracted more than 140 cyclists had four categories which included 20 kilometers, 50 kilometers, 100 kilometers and 10 kilometers fun walkrun.
