Marriage and Family

Velaphi met the love of his life, Rose Pinkie Menge Mosiane at UNIBO. She studied and completed a Honours degree in Social Work. She proceeded to work as a Social Worker for Family Life Centre until such time that they took the decision that she should look after the children full time to give them an opportunity to grow with appropriate family values.
Velaphi and Rose have been blessed with three children. The eldest is a daughter called Mmamorwa Gaboitsewe. Second born is a son named after Velaphi himself and he is known as Junior. The last born is a girl called Reboane.
All the children are to a large extent involved in the farming operation of the family.
While Rose was born and bred in Soweto, fortunately her mother, Sina Mosiane grew up in a farm village in Lichtenburg called Matile where her father was the Local Chief. She does have extensive experience in farming as she was one of ten daughters that looked after the family cattle and ploughed the maize fields.
She often gives Velaphi a hard time about not doing things properly at the farm.
