This past weekend Mahikeng was the official Host for Provincial Mass address for the theme ‘2018 Year of action and Celebrating the birth of the founder of scouting Lord Baden Powell (22 Feb 1857 – 08 Jan 1941).We are indeed re-branding and re-positioning Mahikeng as a Scout city

The Scout Movement is a movement that aims to support young people in their physical, mental and spiritual development, that they may play constructive roles in society, with a strong focus on the outdoors and survival skills.BP  started the scouts movement inspired by young cadets in the Anglo Boer war dubbed “The siege of Mahikeng”(1899 -1900)

The movement employs the Scout method, a programme of informal education with an emphasis on practical outdoor activities, including campingwoodcraftaquaticshikingbackpacking, and sports
