Celebrating lives of phenomenal giants while they are still alive is one of Kgwebong Consulting’s essential goals. Joeman Kgomo, Icebound, Percy Maimela and Tipo Tindisa were amongst many poets, musicians, family and friends that participated in celebrating the life of Ibrahim Mphutlane wa Bofelo.

Ibrahim Mphutlane wa Bofelo is an author of six books of poetry, fiction and social commentary as well as literary criticism essays. He was Secretary and Deputy President of the Muslim Youth Movement. He had performed at several international platforms in Iran, Reunion Island and at the Brics Literary Forum 2017 in Zhuhai in the People’s Republic of China to which he was invited by Professor Hui Jiang. He had been an activist of many youth movements in his life.





On the 3rd of March Kgwebong Consulting partnered with Freedom Park, The Diplomatic Society and the Cultural Consulate of the Embassy of Iran to celebrate the life of Ibrahim Mphutlane wa Bofelo at Freedom Park.

“A day is not far off when we shall have a shrine, a Freedom Park, where we shall honor with all the dignity it deserves those who died for freedom so that me and you may enjoy, and experience freedom.” Naomi Madima from Freedom Park quoted Nelson Mandela in her address. She was one of the speakers at the event who shared the history and purpose of Freedom Park.

Allan Horwitz from Botsotso Poetry is a publisher who published Ibrahim Mphutlane wa Bofelo’s books. He shared the history he had with him and read poems he enjoyed most. Ibrahim Mphutlane wa Bofelo mentioned that he would love to have a repetition of celebrating lives of artists, thereafter he shared the stage with Jaweed Hassan and performed poems from his books. The celebration came with education, with an Iranian Photo Exhibition and guests learned about Iranians and their culture.
