As many people across SA pause for the festive holiday break, Capitec joins Heidedal Branch Manager, Teboho Modjidji, to celebrate the value of family.

This week, we join hardworking Capitec Branch Manager, Teboho Modjidji, in his Heidedal branch in Bloemfontein, to meet the committed crew behind his successful service team. Having started with the bank over 8 years ago, Teboho’s drive and client-centric focus has seen him rise through the ranks, but he will be the first to tell you, he hasn’t done it alone and the support from his work team and family at home is a large part of his success. The branch staff, who consider themselves a family, happily support their enthusiastic and energetic leader, as his leadership style allows each one of them to shine and do what they do best – provide excellent customer service to each of the bank’s clients.

Capitec recognises that a happy staff member is enriched in both their personal and professional lives, and to show appreciation for Teboho’s dedication, the bank arranged an afternoon off for Teboho to spend time with his own family doing something a little special as a family unit. Afterall, the support from his nearest and dearest is naturally a factor that drives the branch manager to continue to strive for growth and excellence in his professional life.

We join the Modjidji family in their home as they get ready for a fun afternoon planned. Teboho’s mother successfully raised and educated 5 children, so he and his wife Mookgo, have a fine example to follow with their own 2 – daughter Wisdom and son Kingdom.

The couple arranged a family photo shoot to mark this special day. Make-up artist, Dimpho Matabane, who helped Mookgo create a finished, natural look that would ensure she looks her best through a camera lense, also shares some good advice and make-up tips for this kind of family photo shoot– even for something informal. After a little fun together at home, the family head to Jumper’s Lane ( in the city, where there are a host of fun activities on offer – from putt putt, trampolines and ziplining – to name a few. Teboho loved the idea of taking these family shots in a fun environment which would allow them to capture the spirit of their family dynamic. A day on the trampolines couldn’t be further from typical banking business but if it makes Teboho an even more human manager, it can only be a good thing.

Family portrait professional, Danita Marais from TruReflection Studio (, was tasked with the job of capturing the family, and this special moment, in the perfect portrait shot and she shares some pointers that mums and dads can use in their own photography while she was doing just that.

Keeping his office hours in balance, Toboho spends the kind of quality time with those he loves, that his clients want for themselves, helping him to understand their needs better.
