Nyiko Masango from Tzaneen is on the verge of history making. Mr Dynamix as he is affectionately known has started cycling from Tzaneen en route to Tanzania, where upon his arrival will conclude the daring adventure by surmounting Kilimanjaro.
On Tuesday, Masango with his entourage of fellow cyclists had covered the distance of almost 210.5 kilometers from Tzaneen in Mopani past Makhado which is at Vhembe district to the other side of Musina, where he’s currently being processed at Beitbridge.
Speaking to Giyani View Masango said he is running a project called ”Presence in fatherhood” an initiative that was conceived from his experience, where he was denied access to his son after parting ways with his mother.
“It’s part of the 100km walk that I do every year since 2017. I do have access to my son now.
“My main objective is to challenge men to be actively involved in their children’s lives. This trip was inspired by a recent loss of a dear friend, a colleague and a fellow adventurer”. He said.
Meanwhile, in November, 29th to 30th he will walk 100km starting in Polokwane at 20:00 Friday and end in Tzaneen the following day.
