As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility, a leading online tax and advisory firm, SMTAX, has donated R50 000 towards the commemoration of the life of late artist Abongile Kroza, in conjunction with Theatre4Change at the Abongile Kroza One-Handers Festival.

The three day festival took place in Khayelitsha at the Makukhanye Art Room over the 24th up to the 26th of March 2017, where plays which were curated, directed and performed by different artists were seen to keep the spirit of Kroza alive.

“In the spirit of Abongile’s legacy of supporting young Black actors, SMTAX decided to be a part of this festival.

We commemorate our fallen hero & would like to encourage everyone attending to follow in his footsteps. SMTAX is passionate about empowering the youth & supporting initiatives that uplift black people.

We celebrate black excellence & endeavour to partner with all interested parties to progress the black child” Buchule Sibaca, SMTAX CEO

“SMTAX is one of the most appealing businesses in South Africa that has a bright future. It helped us create a lasting legacy for Abongile Kroza who was a mutual friend between Buchule and I at UCT.

The work they have done to support artists coming from the townships is something that is way too amazing.” Mandisi Sindo, Director of Theatre4Change

Abongile Kroza, who died in 2012 in a car accident, was regarded as an influential actor, producer, rapper and visual artist who granted his life to theatre productions.

This year, he was being celebrated for his achievements in the industry and the creation of a memorable image of Abongile is how his legacy will live on.
