Booster: a photographer, a businessman

No Image

He came from BOPA. Typical of his kind, he wore the "photographer's" jacket. I can't remember if he was ever introduced or I could just have missed it because I only saw him by the benches at lunchtime.

The man of many names: Booster Galesekegwe - Bucho Lesire, Buzzy T, Mr Botswana or Mzwinila. He had a grand entry at Mmegi. He was just one of the guys - young and outgoing. One of the traits that would define his short life manifested itself in his early days at Mmegi. Booster found it easy to make friends and during the course of his life, he embedded himself in the people of this country - young and old, rich and poor, the connected and the not-so-connected. He glided in and out.

He came to Mmegi during the time of great transformation for the newspaper. For starters, the term desktop publishing was becoming a reality as the newspaper was no longer carried off to the printers in hard copy. Digital files were being used. On the human resources side, Mmegi had it all: Mike Mothibi, Mesh Moeti, Bashi Letsididi and Sechele Sechele. Thus a photographer's life was that of challenge and adventure as he accompanied reporters on assignments.
