Bokamoso Molale and Thami Hoza

The idea for the hot nozzle – a battery operated device which can be attached to a showerhead and which heats the water as it passes through the showerhead – was borne at the Lawhill hostel where Boko and Thami currently reside.

“Our innovation aims to alleviate the problem of cold showers and encourage good personal hygiene while addressing the power-crisis facing South Africa. As these are problems we encounter daily, the advancement of the Hot Nozzle is one that is urgently needed. We are however are imposed by challenges that restrict the progression of our innovation and we hope that the African Innovation Foundation will be able to help us deal with these challenges. We are determined to do whatever is required to make our innovation a success.”
