“For those who don't know, the translation of my name is vision. I say translation and not meaning because our names don't mean something, they are sentences that tell a story. They carry history. Pontsho, in its most practical form, means demonstration. My name is Pontsho because I am a demonstration, a vision, of God’s work.”
