RSC managing director Kutala Vanqa- said the awards are the highlight in the townships business calendar.

“Through these awards, we celebrate successful Kasie companies, and offer an excellent opportunity for all business sectors to meet, be inspired and showcase their achievements,” said Mkunqana.

This year will see 10 different awards being given to deserving recipients, each celebrating and recognising business success across Ikapa, giving businesses from every sector the opportunity to promote and market themselves whilst at the same time inspiring other emerging entities.
