Fans of Skeem Saam will be waiting with bated breath to see Clement Maosa tackle one of the biggest challenges he has ever faced in his life. He is preparing to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak. He will be dedicating the adventure to his late parents.
The big climb will be taking place in July as part of the annual Trek4Mandela expedition. Those taking part in this amazing challenge will summit the peak on 18 July - Mandela Day.

He said that the road to Kilimanjaro is for those who are underprivileged, people who have fewer opportunities and suffer lack of resources and facilities, and those who are neglected. Clement is also doing it for all the orphans on the verge of losing hope. It is also for equality and social justice, he said.
The climb will also be dedicated to loved ones who have passed away who had an impact on his life, which include his mom and dad, and also Akhumzi Jezile and Dumi Masilela.
In memory of all these wonderful people, Clement shared a poem and promised to leave behind a tribute in their honour. He said that he wanted to leave his footprints in the sands of time so he knows he has left something behind. He went on to say that when he leaves this world he will have no regrets and only something to remember – that he was in fact there!
