Six community based organisations each walked away with a cool R10,000 cheque courtesy of Silulo Ulutho Technologies.

Silulo Ulutho had earlier in the year won a R100,000 prize money in the prestigious BBQ Awards which is the longest running black business awards ceremony in the country.

As a condition of the award, Silulo must donate the money to a deserving cause of their choice.

For the past 14 years, these awards celebrated and recognised champions of transformation across industries.

Silulo managing director Luvuyo Rani said it was not an easy decision to choose beneficiaries.

“We receive countless letters daily asking for sponsors and we really cannot answer all of them, but when we won this award, we decided to go for the deserving projects,” said Rani.

He said they divided the prize amongst 10 organisations, six of whom are based in Cape Town and four are from Eastern Cape towns where they have branches.

“This is our way of thanking the communities that made Silulo what it is today. I know the pain of suffering, trying to make ends meet, and today I am releasing these cheques with a very warm heart,” he said.

Rani urged the benefeciaries to “help others” when it was their turn to be lucky.

Speaking at the event UDM member of parliament Nqabayomzi Kwankwa who once worked at Silulo, hailed Rani’s leadership and generosity.

“This is a man who always wants to help,” said Kwankwa.

Organisations that benefitted from the award were UYesunathi, Women at the Well, Bathandwa Day Care, Siyakhathala, Ithemba Old Age Home and Makhaza Lifestyle.
