Clinical Psychologist and Transformational Speaker
Lobone grew up with his maternal grandmother in a remote village called Modimola, outside Mafikeng in the North-West Province of South Africa. He, later on, went to live in Mafikeng (Montshioa location and Lomanyaneng village respectively) with his mother and step-father after they got married. Lobone completed his Matric at St Mary’s high school in Mafikeng where he became the first student in the then Bophuthatswana homeland to receive the “Standard Bank Best Matric Student Award” in 1991 during the year when he was also the Head boy of the school. The event was captured in the Mafikeng Mail, Radio Bop, and Bop TV news. This ignited and marked the beginning of his public speaking.
Inspired by his late grandfather and poet, LD Raditladi, Lobone went to study as a teacher and acquired a University Diploma in Education and Training but did not pursue his initial dream of writing Setswana books. He, however, continued his career as a school teacher and principal while he felt more inspired to become a psychologist.
In 2001, Lobone attended an Inculturation school in Kenya, Nairobi, where he was inspired to understand more about human existence, behaviour, and functioning. In 2003, he organized a fundraising cross-cultural tour to Europe, Austria, where he took with him 15 students from his school choir to stage performances in various communities around Vienna. The money raised was used to educate the poor children in the area of Lomanyaneng and Majemantsho villages in Mafikeng.
Lobone relocated to Johannesburg in 2008 with his family to take up a job as a school principal of a private school in Soweto. He worked as a school teacher for 19 years (including being a deputy and principal for 14 years). Despite his proven success in education, Lobone still believed in his capacity to achieve more, and subsequently decided to pursue his dream of becoming a clinical psychologist. He was fortunate to be selected to a full-time Master’s Degree programme in Clinical Psychology in 2015 at UNISA, which he successfully completed. He is currently working as a clinical psychologist
Lobone is also well-known as a musician in various communities where he lived and worked as a teacher. He was a chorister and co-conductor of the then popular Molopo Choral Artists choir in Mafikeng. He also conducted St.Mary’s Church Choir in Mafikeng and recorded CD albums in 2007 and 2010 (which are currently popular in Motsweding & Mafikeng FM). With his interest in psychology and music, Lobone titled his Masters dissertation “The perceived psychological contributions of choral singing in a Setswana-speaking community.”
