Ideas with wings, or taximan pie in the sky? (and the word "hlokomela")

"One of the first projects under the TR3 20202 strategy is Operation Hlokomela, the Sesotho word for caution.

Among the initiatives under Operation Hlokomela are taxi inspections before leaving the rank and the evaluation of drivers’ physical condition.

The initiative seeks to entrench the values of the Arrive Alive campaign that encourages safe driving practices."

Rethabile says: Actually, 'Hlokomela' is a verb, "to be cautious, to be careful, to watch out", or the imperative "watch out!" or "be careful!" It is not a noun. The noun is Tlhokomelo
