Katlego Boale is a proud brother; he has watched his brother Bohlale achieve great things as an Aeronautical Engineering student and wants to make his life a little easier.


Johannesburg, South Africa (09 February 2022) – Bohlale is an aeronautical engineering student at Wits University in Brackendowns, Gauteng. He currently has outstanding fees from his 2021, which prohibit him from registering for his next year.

He has until the 20th of February 2022 to pay his outstanding fees and register for the upcoming year. Bohlale’s brother knows how much he wants to be an Aeronautical Engineer, so he started a crowdfund to help pay his brother’s fees.

“He is really into aerospace engineering, he’s already looking for vacation work and he hopes to work as an aerospace engineer either in this country or overseas. The location is not important to him as long as he’s working as an aerospace engineer. He Hope’s to either work for SANSA (South African National Space Agency) preferably, Paramount Group, Sandrock Austral, Denel, Armscor, or any of the other many South African aerospace companies.” – Katlego Boale

Bohlale is not only scientifically minded; he is also a talented sportsman. He received sports honours in 2011, 2012, and 2014, also captaining his rugby team in 2010, 2011, and 2014.

“My brother and I are 2 of 7 siblings. He’s the second born and he has done his best to provide for us since our father died in 2016. Our father left us with no life insurance policy which made life a whole lot more difficult and at the time our mother was unemployed. So Bohlale was the sole breadwinner for 5 dependents, his siblings. 

My other older brother, Kamo, is also in university and I’m going to start working this year. The three youngest are 8, 10, and 15 and they still need us.”

The brothers are hard workers, so much so, close friends reached out to share this cause with Good Things Guy in the hopes of getting more support for the brothers. You can help Bohlale by donating here. All funds are being paid directly to the relevant institution.
