[VIDEO] Our traffic guy with a brewing problem: meet Tsikwe Molobye

When you're stuck during your daily commute, Tsikwe Molobye's voice is one of those heard on 702 letting you know to (1) which hazardous roads to avoid (2) drive safely and (3) to keep calm. We all know that options 1 to 3 aren't always as easy to consider for your average Gautenger, especially since you all average around 2 hours per commute on the roads...every. Day. Shame. We're not here for that though.

Our afternoon traffic guy has another side to him: he's an avid brewer of craft beer, something which was initially a hobby and has ended up in him starting his own company, called Stimela:

I grew up listening to jazz and listening to people like Bra Ray Phiri and Bra Hugh Masekela and they craft their music. I'm just using beer in order to reach out to people and change the world!

It's the weekend: forget about the traffic, kick back and grab yourself a beer. Make it local. And craft too. Change the world, like our guy Tsikwe.
