Thami Radebe Road Heroes Award

Who was Thami Radebe?

Thami Radebe was a diversity and disability consultant with a Bachelor’s degree in communication science and a certificate in marketing management.

He first became interested in ethical road use after assisting Lee Randall with her PhD as a fieldworker and translator.

He joined the Road Ethics Project with the intention of helping others to understand the importance of ethical road use; that it is possible that they become better and ethical road users by changing their mental attitude – a choice often neglected with devastating consequences as lives are lost or people acquire disabilities.

Thami passed away unexpectedly in March 2021 due to a brain tumour. We feel his loss keenly in the Project and offer condolences to his loved one

Due to Covid-19, the Award was suspended during 2020 and 2021. It is being re-launched in 2022 as the Thami Radebe Road Heroes Award, to honour our late co-founder
