Francis Tebesi

I am the seventh child in a family of seven children. I was born and raised in Lesotho until I crossed to South-Africa in 2012, looking for greener pastures.

I’m also the father of a 12-year old daughter.

My focus is to pave my daughter’s future, brighten my career and uplift my less fortunate family.
