NFTRC attends the 3rd Kgosi Malope II Annual Cycling Challenge
As it as a norm, National Food Technology Research Centre (NFTRC) took an opportunity to disseminate information about its products and services by exhibiting at the just ended Kgosi Malope II Annual Cycling Challenge. The event was hosted on the 24th February 2019 at Tomela grounds in Kanye and this year it attracted more than 170 cyclists from Botswana, South Africa and Zimbabwe.
The main sponsor of the event was Debswana Jwaneng Mine, and other sponsors included, Kanye Seventh-day Adventist Hospital, KTU express, and NFTRC that sponsored with bottled water for the cyclists.
During the Cycling Challenge, the Chairman of the TsosaMotse Society who are the organisers Mr Kaone Rramontshonyana said that given the sanctity of Mmalekwa cemetery, the vision is to turn it into a communal open park, a youth business resource centre, a digital history library as well as a documentary viewing space; which will become a tourist area and also serve as a centre of knowledge. He shared that this is the third year of the cycling challenge and the developments has started even though they are facing a challenge of few sponsorship opportunities.
