Speaking at the event of the unveiling, Matekane stated that, the Covid-19 pandemic has forced people into the corner of taking stock of their lives â€œand ask ourselves if we are truly safeguarding, maximising and enhancing this wonderful gift we haveâ€.
â€œIf we take care of our bodies as well as we should, we should look at our bodies as cars, but be aware that the car we drive must last a lifetime because we only get one. This busy life we live has truly made it easy for us to forget or even ignore the importance of our health and wellness as if we do not value the gift of life as we ought to.
â€œYears ago when I started Verve Dynamics Incorporated in Bela Bela I had a hope and a dream that we could begin to enhance the wellness of our people by capitalising on the gift of life in the form of the soil and the plant life it yields. Cannabis was only the beginning of this dream but with the arrival of the pandemic I realised that we promote and enable Basotho to fully appreciate and enjoy this precious gift called life. I realised that as Africans, we must do our level best to raise the bar and strive to get our people to a point where they can truly value and enjoy the precious gift of life regardless of their material situation. Health and Wellness are the fuel of a well lived life,â€ Matekane said.
Matekane explained that, it was this dream, married with science and a love of the gift of life that he decided to start a business that will directly and indirectly improve the lives of Basotho, Africans and the world at large,â€ he sad
â€œI am proud to introduce to you and the world, Organica Global Brands.

Be it medicines, Health Supplements, Skin and hair care products, Organica has the capacity to meet the needs of the people and we are hopeful that we can meet the needs of the world,â€ said Matekane.
