Thabang Mabapa of Selokong Sa Dimelana

Don’t let Thabang Mabapa’s age fool you. The 24 year old Soweto raised (but Limpopo-based) is the founder of Selokong Sa Dimelana: an organisation that uses castor oil and castor cake as an alternative to fossil fuel.

Thabang understands that too much dependency on crude oil as the only source of energy poses a threat on our future both environmentally and financially. This forward-thinking entrepreneur has a 10-year development plan to ensure its success. Thabang Mabapa is a Red Bull Amaphiko Academy participant.

He is Spark International (South Africa) ‘Changemaker’ of the year 2016. His organisation was selected on the top 10 Total Startupper of the year 2016.
